History

 

 

Our history curriculum offers children a coherent knowledge and understanding of the past; it provides children with opportunities to look at artefacts and to ask questions about what the past was like.  From EYFS to Year 6 children look at progressive timelines, placing themselves within this to gain an understanding about the previous periods of time and the changes that have occurred. The curriculum has been designed to provide children with knowledge and understanding about the history of the United Kingdom, including our local area, and that of the wider world. We intend to create children who are inquisitive about the past and who understand that each era is different from the next, whilst building their understanding of society.
