All children at Eye have the opportunity to study at least two history topics each academic year. We try to make history come to life through trips, special topic days, drama, art, visitors and handling artefacts. You will see examples of some of our great history experiences in the photographs in this area of the website. The history of Eye is also studied through visits to the church, the war memorial, village walks and talks by visitors.
These photographs show some of the history trips we have been on and special events we have participated in. Trips include: Eye Church; Peterborough Museum; the village war memorial and many other fabulous places.
Special history days, trips and events
Our special events have included a History off the Page toys museum day, a Medieval banquet, Fire of London day and other exciting events. You can see the fun we have had in the following photographs!
Year 5 had Viking Day, run by History off the Page. They had a fabulous, informative day.
Year 1 visit Peterborough Museum for Edith Cavell day. They had lots of practical experience training to be nurses in 1911.
History is also present in our school environment through our informative and attractive displays. We also have a variety of timelines on show in classrooms and corridors, linking the children's learning about different time periods.
