Wigton Infant School


History has an important part to play as children learn more about themselves and the world around them. We try to give the children lots of practical experiences and use resources such as artifacts, photos, visitors and visits to enhance their understanding of the past.


We have a history based topic where Year 2 learn about castles and the people who live in them. The year 2 role play is a castle.We also visit Carlisle Castle and Tullie House to find out about Border Reivers. Year 1 learn about famous people like Florence Nightingale and their role play is a Victorian school or explorers like Scott of the Antartic. Reception children learn about growing up and changes in their lives.
