The intent of our History curriculum is to deliver a curriculum which is accessible to all. We provide a wide and diverse range of creative opportunities for children to investigate and understand the natural and human world around them; fostering curiosity about diverse places, people, resources and environments.
Children will be encouraged to become inquisitive Historians by asking and answering questions about past lives and societies through handling and analysing a wide range of historical evidence. By understanding the lives of those of the past, children will gain a better understanding of their own identity. By broadening and developing learning experiences within History, children will have a deeper understanding of how people’s lives have shaped this nation and how Britain has influenced and been influenced by the wider world.
We cultivate curiosity about significant aspects of History such as the wider world; including the expansion and dissolution of empires; characteristic features of wider European and Non-European societies and the achievements and past mistakes of mankind in order to foster a greater tolerance towards others.
Children will be able to evaluate and analyse historical trends and draw their own conclusions, understanding the link between actions and consequences.
