In our History curriculum we strive to create opportunities for children to gain a knowledge and understanding of Britain’s past and that of the wider world. Our aim is to inspire pupils’ curiosity to know more about the past and equip them to ask perceptive questions. We also challenge them to think critically, weigh evidence, sift arguments, and develop perspective and judgement.  In this way they develop an understanding of the complexities 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.

Cross Curricular Activities

We ensure that our History teaching makes links and connections with other areas of the curriculum. This helps the children to remember new ideas and also to consider themes and concepts across a broader range of subjects.

For example, when learning about Ancient Greece we look at the geography of ancient and modern Greece and consider the diet of the ancient Greeks which we recreate in our Design Technology lessons.
