As pupils progress, we want our History curriculum to fire pupils’ curiosity to ask questions and know more about Britain’s past and that of the wider world. Children will be encouraged to develop a chronological understanding of British history that will enable them to make sense of the new knowledge they acquire and the process of change helps them to see how we arrived ‘here’ and helps them to make sense of the present.
We will create a History Curriculum that helps our children to think critically, question and challenge sources, opinions and information. We aim to encourage enquiry, inference, the ability to use high-order vocabulary, questioning, curiosity and communication
By the end of each key stage, pupils will know, apply and understand the Historical knowledge and skills specified in the National Curriculum for History.
Our children will have a confident set of historical skills and knowledge, supported by Christian values which can be used to help them to make sense of the past and how it has influenced the present and the future they will live in. We strive for all of our children and young people to know what it means to be an historian – immersed in and inspired by history – with transferable skills and a sound progression of knowledge and sequenced understanding of key concepts that are transferable, as they progress into high school so they can flourish, be their best and have fun.
