St Gilbert's R.C.

Primary School

Inspired by St. Gilbert, as God's family, we are growing strong in love and faith, becoming the best we can be.


History at St Gilbert's, children are taught to question their understanding of the past. We aim to teach history through the use of brilliant artefacts and exciting trips! This will help pupils gain an in depth experience of the significant aspects of history in the wider world. We want to make history fun and use methods such as historical enquiry to help us make sense of the past and what lessons can be learned for today.

Below are some websites to browse through.

The History National Curriculum


St Gilbert's had the pleasure  of hearing the inspirational speaker, Chris Lubbe. We learned lots about  living in South Africa under the Apartheid government and what it was like being the body guard to Nelson Mandela.


He spoke about there  being a freedom when we truly forgive others who have done wrong to us and that we can make a difference.  Thank you Chris !

The Year 4 children had fun celebrating their end of term topic on the Ancient Greeks. The children dressed up in their togas and chitons and celebrated in style. They tasted food, took part in a mini Olympic, danced and did some Greek maths.
