Whinstone HISTORY

History at Whinstone is taught discretely but also through other subject areas, allowing for historical thinking to be developed in context and across the curriculum. It is the process of enquiry, the search for evidence and the examination of this evidence to help children reconstruct the past that is at the heart of History at Whinstone.
