Together we care, together we learn and together we grow

History Statement of Intent

As historians children will gain a coherent knowledge and understanding of the history of Britain and how it has been influenced by the Wider World. Through high- quality teaching, children will be equipped with the skills to make enquiries, think critically, compare evidence and study sources whilst developing a sense of perspective and judgement. Children will develop a chronological understanding of key historical events from Britain and the Wider World. Through a series of threads, children will explore a variety of key themes throughout the history curriculum, building upon their learning as they travel through school. They will be provided with experiences of artefacts, visits and visitors and a wealth of historical sources in order to capture their fascination and promote a love of history.

Curriculum Content

Each unit taught across school is underpinned by a knowledge organiser, designed to focus the children's learning, making it both purposeful and meaningful, building upon prior learning through a series of 'golden threads.' These are key historical skills which will progress as the children move through the school providing them with the necessary knowledge and skill base to be successful historians.

Trips and Visits

Throughout their school careers, children are provided with a wealth of enrichment opportunities which endeavour to consolidate and deepen their existing historical knowledge from the classroom. These opportunities inspire and ignite the childrens' natural curiosity for this wonderful subject and their understanding of Local, National and Worldwide historical studies from Ancient civilisations to beyond 1066.  

Our Wonderful Creations

We believe that creative and quality pieces of work require time and allow the children to express themselves fully. We create fewer pieces, valuing quality over quantity when it comes to the childrens' history learning. This wonderful work can be seen in school through the childrens' 'Discovery Books' and at the top of this page. Enjoy!
