History

At Boundary we are passionate about the teaching of History. We understand studying history gives children the opportunity to develop an understanding of why the world and its people are the way they are today. Additionally, it prompts children to question as they explore the diversity of human experience, past lives and societies. Local history is important to us and our curriculum has been carefully crafted to ensure children can experience and evaluate the rich history of Blackpool. As well as the history covered below, we explore the history of some of our school communities in black history week, We also celebrate our local area each year where we explore a little more about the rich history of Blackpool; including its part in World War 1 and, of course, the famous illuminations!
