We teach History in discrete weekly lessons, linked to the topics the children are learning. Our History curriculum and teaching will help pupils gain a coherent knowledge and understanding of Britain’s past and that of the wider world. We inspire pupils’ curiosity about the past and encourage them to ask and answer questions in order to know and remember more. We encourage the children to ask perceptive questions, think critically, weigh evidence, sift arguments, and develop perspective and judgement. Through the teaching of History we teach the 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.
In Early Years, the children learn History through the subject Understanding the World. The children access History through their play and through adult led activities for a range of topics across the year, as well as in weekly circle time discussions.
