In Key Stage 1, the focus of history is very much on locally significant events or events within their own memories, as well as key events of real significance such as Bonfire Night. In addition, children will find out about important historical people and events, such as Florence Nightingale, the Great Fire of London and the Battle of Jersey.

In Key Stage 2, there are four main areas of study:

  1. Changes in prehistoric Britain2. Ancient civilisations3. Invaders and Settlers4. Various choices of study of a period after 1066 (dependent on year group)

The study is intended to begin the development of a clear chronological understanding of Jersey and British history.
