6 Red-Thursday 21st May

Good morning Six Red!! Hope you are all safe and well. Yesterday was such a lovely day, the weather was beautiful, the birds were chirping and it felt great to be buzzing with lots of energy. Did everyone have a lovely evening? Anyone got any news they would like to share with the rest of us?

The national curriculum is divided into many subjects which are then broken down into different units within that subject. One of these subjects taught is History. You guys would have studied several history based units during your time at Broad Heath. For example in year 6 we looked at the Black Death, The Mayans, history of Coventry cathedral, and exploded black history.

Do you agree or disagree with the following statement :

The best way to prepare for the future is to study the past.

What do you guys think? Please clearly explain your thoughts. I am really looking forward to reading your responses.

  1. I agree because past experiences may have taught people lessons. An example is that people studied earthquakes from the past to learn how to be safe when an earthquake happen in the future.

  2. I had a great evening, How about you?
    The best way to help your future carry on the best way as possible is to educate and study the past, this may be helpful on some occasions but if you are continuously failing at a specific thing or subject, you probably will get stuck. However, educating the past will help you learn on your previous mistakes making it easier to pass your current struggles and making them quicker for you to do. Your old experience on a subject will improve ONLY if you study. In my opinion, I think studying is the best way to help your future. (There are other ways of helping your future to)

  3. I agree because it is saying learn from your mistakes so if you had ww1 then the people fighting in ww2 would learn from there mistakes and they economy and there fighting skills would be bigger and better.

  4. I agree because if you are going to make something in the future you need to look at the past on how to make it. e.g if you want to make a cake Tomorrow you need to look in the past to know how to make it.

    • Hi Mustafa, the example you have give isn’t directly linked to the topic “history”. If you want to bake a cake you would look at baking textbooks, websites, and asking people for recipes. Let’s say for example a civil war was about to break out in a country. Could any lessons be learnt from previous civil wars which have already taken place in the past?

  5. I think that is correct because once you learn something you will always remember it. If the black death came back again then we could historically search about safety, about how to keep safe from people and how we should reflect on how many people that were safe and for those who passed away. If we reflect on it then we might be able to be safe. Therefore I think it is correct.

    • Lovely example Umaiyah! Yes if a situation arises which is similar to that of a situation which has already occurred in the past; many lessons can be learned. Solutions to problems can be found, and hopefully no one will get hurt or die.

  6. I had a great evening thank you for asking, how about you.

    I do not know if it is the best way but it is a way. This is because everyone makes mistakes and you learn from them so if you study the past then you will not make the same mistakes again. Also, the experiences you have had help you to so if you study the past then you will remember what you have learne.

  7. Listening to other people stories creates an empathy that affects how we live in the real world. Every past event has a cruse or causes that as we look back at them typically make sense to us from our vantage point in the present. Likewise each past event has implications and influences the events that follow it. The difference of course is that we don’t know what will happen in the future. Instead, we have a wide range of possible futures. But just as with a events happening today, will shape the ultimate future. You have to know the past to understand the present.

  8. Well. To my opinion. I do agree. As you can see. We will need to work hard for the best future. It’s ok if you guys dont agree but just saying it’s really important to have a great. Enthusiastic life. Learning from past experience and getting a better future can engage our thoughts through circumstances of our lives. So these study’s that we learn helps us with our future. It helps gives us knowledge and become very strong.

  9. Good morning everyone,
