AT THE HEART OF OUR HISTORY CURRICULUM ISHistorical knowledge
& skills

These concepts are planned for through topics that ask a big question and are taught to enable children to develop historical knowledge and skills. We encourage children to be history detectives, whereby they are guided by the teacher to use skills such as inference and deduction, investigating and evaluating historical evidence, asking questions and identifying similarities and differences, to answer questions about the past.

We also consider different versions of the past and how and why they may differ. We enhance learning in the classroom with educational visits to significant places in the local area and by inviting visitors into school. Through the teaching of History, we can help children to: improve decision making; learn from the mistakes of others; understand change; develop a better understanding of the world we live in and develop a greater appreciation for current events by building knowledge and understanding of historical events.

Where possible, we utilise links with other subjects, for example, art and design and design technology. The History curriculum is also closely linked to the English text-based curriculum but only where there are good quality texts that link to the topics.
