In History, we aim to develop a coherent knowledge and rich understanding of the local, national and world events and people which have shaped our world today. We make full use of resources within the immediate and wider local area enabling children to develop a deep understanding of the rich history of their locality. Through educational visits and visitors to school we create memorable experiences which bring the learning to life.


As outlined in the National Curriculum, we wish our children to gain knowledge and understanding of Britain’s past and that of the wider world which helps to stimulate pupils’ curiosity to learn more. By re-visiting themes over a range of different topics, we aim to embed a knowledge of concepts, facts and skills which will enhance the learning experience for the children. This is supported by the development of a rich and varied vocabulary which will underpin and consolidate the understanding of the knowledge we gain. We want children to make links between the past and understand how this can impact the lives they lead now and into their future. By incorporating the themes of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals into our History learning, the children will have an insight into how the actions of the past have shaped our world, creating both benefits and problems.


We encourage the children to ask thoughtful questions, think critically, weigh evidence, sift arguments, and develop perspective and judgement. We want them to understand the complexity of people’s lives, the process of change, the diversity of societies and relationships between different groups. We want them to participate in a culture of active learning, developing a lifelong curiosity which will remain with our children throughout their lives.
