Infant School

Aiming High, Achieving Together


At Merton Infant School we bring History alive through exciting topics that inspire children's curiosity about the past. History is linked to other subjects including Literacy, Drama and Art.


We teach the children to think critically and ask and answer questions. This helps them to understand the complexity of people's lives and how historical events have shaped our world.


We also arrange trips to areas of interest e.g. Titanic museum in Southampton, Portchester or Windsor castles. This field work gives the children first-hand experience of original artefacts and experts who enrich the children's knowledge and understanding.
