We asses the children's learning in a number of ways. Initially, we can see how successful our teaching has been by the children's response, engagement and enjoyment. History is a very popular topic at Bowdon Church School because the children enjoy learning about, being part of and constructing their own ideas about History.
The ways in which children respond, make links and partake in discussions is identified and used as a way of assessing their progress in History. This can be both in written and oral methods. Children at Bowdon Church School are very keen Historians who have a good knowledge of local, British and World history. They understand the impact that each part of History has had on today's world and the ways in which we live and they are able to identify key similarities and differences between time periods. Children leave us with a love of their history and a desire to explore further.
