Our aim in History is for children to understand and appreciate their time and place in the world. We want to inspire pupils' curiosity about the past and understand the process of change. We want children to know about significant events in history - both British and Worldwide - and to be able to place these within time periods. We want them to understand how people's lives have been influenced by such events and we encourage children to make connections and draw contrasts between different time periods.
History at our school is taught through themed units - often with an inspirational launch at the start or an engaging trip / visit to historical sites in our area. Learning objectives draw from knowledge and skills included in the National Curriculum. Children's skills progress across the school through the key concepts of: chronological understanding, knowledge and interpretation and historical enquiry and communication.
