We believe that history lessons should be engaging experiences that foster curiosity and encourage children to connect with and understand the world around them children are taught to be reflective about how events from the past have both shaped today’s world and have the potential to impact on the future.
By linking learning to a range of topics, children have opportunities to investigate and interpret the past, understand chronology and build an overview of Britain’s past as well as that of the wider world. Furthermore, we also examine the historical significance of ancient civilisations and cultures.
By building an understanding of how to best weigh evidence, develop perspective and make critical judgements, children are equipped with the skills to engage in their own historical studies. Moreover, pupils learn how to use and apply their questioning skills to further their knowledge and understanding of the world they live in.
