History at Norman Pannell.


Our history curriculum is aimed at providing children with a great understanding of chronology.  Throughout the school children engage in a number of exciting topics to help them build up an understanding of how the world has changed.  We learn to ask questions and piece together evidence to develop our knowledge.  Whether it be looking at the Great Fire of London, the Ancient Mayans or the history of our own amazing city, we aim to have fun.  Keep checking back for pictures of us enjoying ourselves!

Note to Parents


Dear Parents/Carers

History is important to us here at Norman Pannell, especially our own local history.  In order to raise our understanding of our school and local area we would really like your help.  Could you please check your photo albums for these things:

  • A school picture of you, or somebody in your family, from their own time at Norman Pannell.
  • Pictures of the local area/people from the past.

If you are willing to share these memories please can we have a copy of your photograph – or send the photograph into school and we will take a copy and return it to you.  The photographs we will be used for a display in school, to enhance history learning in class and will be proudly displayed in a local history section on the school website.


Thanks for your continuing support,

Mrs Size

History Co-ordinator
