History

History helps pupils to understand the process of change and the diversity of societies, as well as their own identity and the challenges of their time. Our History curriculum aims to equip pupils to ask perceptive questions, think critically, weigh evidence and sift arguments, as well as developing perspective and judgement.

We use the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum and the National Curriculum for History as the basis for our planning. Links are made to termly themes and other curriculum subjects where appropriate. We ensure that there are opportunities for pupils of all abilities to develop their skills and knowledge in each topic and we plan progression across the year so that pupils’ are increasingly challenged as they move through the school.

We aim to teach History in a creative and cross-curricular way, inspiring our pupils’ curiosity to know more about the past, whilst developing a chronological framework for their knowledge of significant events and people.
