History

We intend for our History curriculum to allow children to gain a coherent knowledge and understanding of Britain’s past and that of the wider world. We strive to inspire pupils’ curiosity about the past and to know more about the past. We intend for our children to be confident to understand and ask questions about historical events and their world. We endeavour to teach children to understand the complexity of people’s lives, the process of change, the diversity of societies and relationships between different groups, as well as their own identity and the challenges of their time. We will introduce children to the skills needed to undertake of historical enquiry and investigation. We will do this through fieldwork, locational knowledge and knowledge of significant historical events.
