Hadrian Primary School

"An outstanding school where children make excellent progress" Ofsted

Be Unique;Believe, Achieve, Succeed Together


The History curriculum at Hadrian Primary School covers a variety of topics ranging from Ancient Egypt to The Second World War which covers the National Curriculum.

 The children are encouraged to find out about the past using a variety of resources and through role play to improve their knowledge and understanding of what happened in the past, why and what the effects are and children are encouraged to empathise with people from different eras.

The school is involved in a new project with The Paul Hamlyn trust which provides a grant to develop oracy   skills through history, funding for history visits and courses to up-skill history teaching.

We have also been involved with designing and putting together a box of artifacts about Arbeia which other schools can hire.


We  have a large focus on the history of Britain and can place events in chronological order.

The topics are organised into year groups.
