Our teaching of History aims to inspire in pupils a curiosity and fascination about the world and its people. Our curriculum has been developed to provide pupils with a comprehensive knowledge of Britain’s past and develop their understanding of significant locations in the wider world and key events in world history.
We equip pupils with the skills to ask perceptive questions, think critically, weigh evidence and develop a rounded perspective and judgement.
As well as studying and learning about the wider world and significant historical events the children’s learning will be centred around the school’s locality, which provides a rich and varied landscape for the children to explore and learn from. Using the local environment will enable the children to learn through direct experience and first hand investigation as well as placing their learning in a personal context. As they progress through the school, pupils will become more aware of the process of change, the diversity of societies as well developing a greater understanding of their own identity.
