Our History curriculum facilitates a development of a chronologically secure knowledge and understanding of British, local and world history, establishing clear narratives within and across the periods the children explore.
Children will note connections, contrasts and trends over time and develop the appropriate use of historical terms. They will regularly address and sometimes devise historically valid questions about change, cause, similarities and differences, and significance. They will construct informed responses that involve thoughtful selection and organisation of relevant historical information. They will be able to show understanding of how our knowledge of the past is constructed.
As with all of our subjects, we endeavour to teach our history curriculum in-line with our core skills of engagement (play and exploring), motivation (active learning), and thinking (creative and critical).
