I'm Diane Williams and I lead learning in History at The Vaynor.
At The Vaynor we have created a rich enquiry-based History curriculum which inspires our children to think as Historians by examining and questioning evidence from the past. History is a pivotal subject that helps our pupils understand who they are. It is from the past that we can understand our current place in the world and how that influences our future. History is taught, so pupils can connect with the past and explore sensitive issues with empathy. Our children explore the role of Redditch in History as well as wider events from the past that have affected our nation and their place within it. We want our pupils to be empowered to use the past to inform their actions in the future.
