History

History

The curriculum enables children to learn about the passing of time and encourages them to learn about the past from a range of sources.  Children are encouraged to develop enquiry skills which help them gain a coherent knowledge and understanding of Britain’s past and that of the wider world.  We equip children to ask perceptive questions, think critically, weigh evidence, sift arguments, and develop perspective and judgement.

History helps children to understand the complexity of people’s lives, the process of change, the diversity of societies and relationships between different groups, as well as their own identity and the challenges of their time.
