History

Our History curriculum is organised chronologically to enable children to gain a coherent knowledge and understanding of Britain’s past and that of the wider world. Local history is integrated across school through visits, visitors and links with local museums and heritage sites.  We base the history curriculum on the core knowledge programme; embedding grounded historical knowledge in addition to key skills such as evaluation, questioning and becoming real historians. 

We believe that a vibrant and extensive knowledge of the past enables our pupils to develop their skills for enquiry, and helps pupils to understand the challenges we face now and will in the future.

We provide experiential learning which will engage the children and secure those key facts; this could include exciting activities such as experiencing life as a first and third class passenger on the Titanic to spending the day as a Spartan or Athenian, debating the values of both ways of life. We ensure our topics embed the learning of Fundamental British Values, with talks of democracy throughout the ages and discussions about the rule of law, tolerance and the rights of people. 

For details about specific year group coverage, see the curriculum map for each year group, found on the class pages of our website.
