The purpose of History

History helps children to explore an awareness of the past whilst using vocabulary that relates to the passing of time whilst being critical of the sources they are being exposed to (artefacts, pictures, online websites). It will equip children to be critical, understanding and aware as members in society.


The curriculum for History aims to ensure that all pupils are taught about:

  • Changes within living memory in relation to national life (Remembrance Day).
  • Events beyond living memory that are significant nationally or globally (for example, the first explorer to Antarctic regions).
  • The lives of significant individuals in the past who have contributed to national and international achievements (e.g. Christopher Columbus bringing cocoa to Europe).
  • Significant historical events, people and places in our locality.


At Brookfield Infants, we provide the children with immersive topics and cross-curricular links to our writing through drama and role-play areas in our classrooms. We aim to recognise how our lives are different to those in the past (similar and different) whilst recognising why people acted how they did in the past and what happened as a result of it.

Subject Knowledge Organisers are a summary of the key knowledge and skills that the children will be taught within this topic.
