Exploring the explorers for primary history

Exploration and a curiosity about the world are key human characteristics that have shaped and continue to shape our behaviour. Nowhere is this more true than with younger children who relish the opportunity to investigate their environment and all it contains. Promoting this natural curiosity and introducing stimulating challenge should surely be a feature of every classroom.

Included within the subject content is requirement to investigate the lives of significant individuals.
