Our Intent for History

We believe history is essential to our understanding of the development of the modern world. Through enquiry and research, children can connect with real people and real events that have shaped societies and communities, both local and worldwide. Learning is further enriched with visits to places outside school to offer first hand experiences. Our curriculum is carefully designed so that the children in Key Stage one and Reception find out about recent history, whereas the children in key Stage 2 learn about events in chronological order, enabling them to put their learning into context. There is also a clear focus on the history and development of our local area in both key stages. Skills and vocabulary are built on in a progressive manner, so that the children become curious learners of the past, who are able to question and evaluate historical events and actions in a responsible manner.
