We believe that it is in studying and understanding life and events in the past that we can come to an understanding of life in the present, and what we may be preparing for the future. The study of history is more than the learning of discrete facts; it is also the understanding of the underlying reasons for events and developments, and applying this understanding to the improving of life as we live it. The skills developed in the study of history are far reaching and can affect all aspects of our lives.
- To stimulate interest in the past and encourage speculation and questioning.
- To help pupils come to an understanding of the nature of the society in which we live in the context of past social and political developments.
- To foster a sense of identity and an increased understanding of pupils’ own positions in their own community and the world.
History is taught across the school following the 2014 National Curriculum.
The Whole School Curriculum Map details every topic, including History, that each class covers in each term throughout the school year. However, more detail about the objectives covered in each unit can be found in the half termly curriculum overviews.
When planning, teachers use this document to ensure that the appropriate knowledge, skills and understanding for the year group are taught. It ensures high expectations are set in an exciting, comprehensive and broad curriculum.
