At Ackton Pastures, we believe that it is important that children acquire a secure historical knowledge and an understanding of how the past has shaped the present. We deliver engaging history lessons which enable the children to explore the past and develop an awareness of how their own identity has had an impact on civilisation. We provide the opportunity to discover how people and events have shaped this nation and how Britain has been influenced by the wider world. Our aim is to inspire a love of history and encourage our pupils to become critical thinkers who are able to explore a historical line of enquiry.
“Those who cannot learn from history are doomed to repeat it. Those who do not remember their past are condemned to repeat their mistakes. Those who do not read history are doomed to repeat it. Those who fail to learn from the mistakes of their predecessors are destined to repeat them.”
– George Santayana
