Be a Historian: 'Beliefs'

 

History can really get the pulse racing with excitement; just ask Dr Indiana Jones or Lara Croft!  

A historian has the fascinating job of exploring and interpreting the past, pitting their wits against the evidence to build up a picture of the past.  Whilst being a historian in Year 5 is considerably less dangerous than for the aforementioned fictional fortune-hunters, we aim for it to be just as exhilarating!

This year, we will be exploring a range of periods through the theme of 'Beliefs' which we aim to document on this page along with useful links and home learning suggestions.  

As ever, please share any suggestions you might have which may be useful for others and we would love to hear about anything else you have discovered.
