A people without the knowledge of their past history, origin and culture is like a tree without roots.’ – Marcus Garvey

Children and teachers love learning about history at Concordia Academy. We have developed a rich history curriculum which enlightens, motivates and inspires the young minds of the future. It has been recognised by many that knowledge of past events helps to develop our knowledge of the future. We aim to provide high-quality, interactive and engaging lessons which stimulate the children’s minds and help them to understand the history of the UK and the wider world.

Exploration into key historical events such as The Great Fire of London, World War 1 and World War 2, give children an idea of how the wonderful world we live in today has been shaped. As the children learn through the historical timeline, from the Ancient Egyptians onto the Romans and all the way through to the modern day, they develop their knowledge of how people lived and their cultures, giving them an understanding of who we are and where we came from.

Alongside our history curriculum, we also go above and beyond by celebrating and educating children on specific historical events throughout the year, such as Guy Fawkes Night and Remembrance Day, with our annual Black History Month Carnival taking place in the Autumn Term.
