In the Foundation Stage children will be taught History through the Specific Area, Understanding the World. In the Early Years children begin to learn that as they grow up they are increasingly able to do more things for themselves independently and through first hand experiences, they are introduced to the concept of time and change. There will be a focus on themselves, their family and their immediate environment. Children will sequence events and explore patterns and routines. Children will be encouraged to talk about their findings and record them by drawing, writing or model making. These emerging skills and development of knowledge and understanding can be used to explore crucial early historical skills.
