History topics are planned for each term and taught across a whole Key Stage.
We aim to:
- Provide opportunities for all children to have the historical skills and knowledge to prepare them for the future.
- Give children the opportunity to discover an interest and curiosity in history as well as embracing lessons from the past.
- Build on and use key historical vocabulary.
- Give children a wider understanding of Britain’s past and the wider world.
- Provide engaging and interesting lessons.
- Give children the opportunity to gain an understanding of chronological order and historical timelines.
How we will achieve our aims:
- High quality teaching.
- History taught across relevant year groups and following a progressive programme of study.
- Children are given the opportunity to develop a range of historical skills.
- Building a love of history through the use of visits, visitors and curriculum themed days.
- Use of historical sources and resources to engage the children in their learning.

We will know we’ve achieved our aims if:
- Children recognise the importance of history in their everyday lives as well as from the past.
- Children will have gained an understanding of local history as well as world history.
- Children are able to apply their historical knowledge to other subjects and other areas of the curriculum.
