We provide a high-quality history education which will enable pupils to gain a coherent knowledge and understanding of their Britain’s past and that of the wider world. This includes history local to our area, and how this has been impacted by national and global factors. History is taught through a creative curriculum whereby we encourage our children to be free thinkers. We believe History helps pupils to understand the complexity of people’s lives in society, the process of change, and diversity of societies allowing our pupils to develop a sense of their own identity and the challenges of their time.
We begin each new termly topic by placing the relevant historical dates on a timeline. This also matches to the timeline that is included on the wall in each classroom. History is interwoven throughout the week, with children developing historical skills and factual knowledge that can be used in literacy, geography, reading, and their general understanding of the past throughout their daily lives.
