You still have in mind the date of the Battle of Marignan? Your child will apprehend things very differently. Not enough to make a story! Find out how this learning is done in class and how to help your schoolboy at home.

  • History Programs in Cycle III of 2002 do not look at all like the teaching you've had. In a break with the systematic learning of dates of events, your child must be able to distinguish the great historical periods, to situate them chronologically and to begin to know what characterizes them. This is not an easy task, because for a child, the representation of time and time is not at all obvious.

When does it start?

The entire historical frieze is set up at the beginning of CE2 and then completed until the end of cycle III. A wall frieze remains in the classroom and your child may have one in his notebook or storybook. On this frieze are distinguished the following six periods:

  • Prehistory which ends around - 600 with the beginnings of writing.
  • Antiquity ending in 476 during the fall of the Western Roman Empire.
  • The Middle Age ending in 1492 with the discovery of the Americas by Christopher Columbus.
  • Modern times which includes the Napoleonic era with the second abdication of the Emperor in 1815 after the Battle of Waterloo.
  • The nineteenth century culminating in the beginning of the First World War in 1914.
  • The twentieth century and the present world.
  • Generally, it is expected that each year of the cycle includes the discovery of two periods. Nevertheless, the peculiarities of certain single or double-level classes make this division not systematic.
