History

History allows children to develop a critical understanding and curiosity of the past. It enables our children to develop an appreciation of different cultures, people’s lives and the complexity of change.

Through our History curriculum the children encounter big questions that extend their understanding of issues, think critically, weigh evidence, sift arguments, and develop perspective and judgement.

The History curriculum has been designed around the requirements of the National curriculum in collaboration with external experts. We have carefully selected the areas of study to support the curriculum needs ensuring appropriate challenge and progression is provided across the year groups.

The curriculum enables our children to broaden their social and cultural awareness. Carefully planned enquiry-led opportunities allow the children to develop their awareness and knowledge of the local area.
