History

The National Curriculum states that pupils should develop a chronologically secure knowledge and understanding of British, local and world history. Teaching should equip them to ask perceptive questions, think critically, weigh evidence, sift arguments and develop perspective and judgements. All pupils should make connections, draw contrasts, analyse trends, frame historically valid questions and create their own accounts, including written methods and analyses.

History is taught as part of our long term topic curriculum plan. Children learn with the support of a range of media, for example historical artefacts, printed information and Internet sources, out of school visits and in school workshops, themed days and primary and secondary sources. Cross curricular links are made with a number of subjects, including English, ICT and Art and DT.

Cross curricular writing is a strength. Children are eager to apply their historical knowledge in their writing and are able to identify the audience, purpose and form of their writing when it is linked to their current topic.

Local study units enable children to gain a greater understanding of the towns and cities they live in and to learn about the experiences of people who lived in the community in past decades or centuries.

Children are able to visit local landmarks or museums, which provide a wealth of knowledge and artefacts that serve as valuable sources to support learning.
