Dear [NAME] We have compiled this newsletter to stress the importance of History, Geography and Religious Education. It highlights the significance of these subjects to all key stage areas and to increasing pupils' knowledge of the world around them. The papers show the diversity of the subjects and how learning about other places, people in history or other religions ensures that your children, as they get older, are prepared to make decisions from a more knowledgeable and caring standpoint.
KS2 history The Wooden Horse of Troy is familiar to many, so they can find out more about the history of the city. The Great Fire of London is important in the history of our capital city and children study the Stuart period. World War II is another period studied - children will be amazed at the Rationing in World War II! Test their knowledge with our quiz on the Vikings.
KS1 RE Help young children to understand what it means if they, or their friends, belong to a religion. They will enjoy finding our about Jesus' friends with our colourful 12 Apostles Quiz. We live in a multi-cultural society and it's important that we understand the beliefs of others - Rosh Hashanah and The Torah are two of the many resources we have to help with this.
