We want our pupils to have an understanding of the past and how History has already and will shape the future. Our History lessons encourage critical thinking, enhance the ability to gather and use evidence to generate and form views, develop chronological understanding and allow pupils to develop their perspective on the world around them. Our History curriculum is full of topics which excite and motivate the pupils into wanting to know about the past and ask ‘why’. Wherever possible, our history topics are linked to the texts we are reading and our over arching themes. The learning in each lesson draws on knowledge and skills included in the National curriculum.
