Work at Home Activities
History is a valued part of the curriculum at Clare Mount School. It is a tool to help improve the pupils literacy and numeracy skills but its role is much more than this. It stimulates the child's innate curiosity about the past as it provides a means of exploring, appreciating and understanding the world in which we live and how it has evolved by asking where? when? what? and why?
