History

In history we will inspire children to want to know more about the past, develop an understanding of the passing of time and how this has changed the world they live in, whilst also developing the skills and passion needed to build upon this knowledge in the future.

In our lessons we will teach a progression of history skills and knowledge through a chronological approach, going further back in time as the academic year progresses.

Our children will make connections and build upon the knowledge and skills taught, inspiring them to be historians of the future.
