History can help children to make sense of the world in which they live in and can help them to develop a sense of identity. Our aim is that children should understand that the society in which we live, has been shaped by developments of the past.
We teach History through a cross-curricular themed approach, developing knowledge and key skills in asking and answering questions using historical sources and being able to solve problems through an investigative approach. The big concepts that we have identified in History are:
Continuity and Change., Chronology., Cause and Consequence, Similarity and Difference, Significant people and events and Historical Enquiry.
Below is a curriculum map outlining the progression of skills that the children will gain throughout our school.
