Purpose of Study
We intend to provide a broad and balanced History curriculum which provides children with the opportunity to develop, build and master their skills, knowledge and understanding of Britain and the wider world.
All children will become historians, knowing and understanding history as chronological narrative: how people’s lives have shaped this nation and how Britain has influenced and been influenced by the wider world; know and understand about significant aspects of the history of the wider world like ancient civilisations and empires; changes in within and beyond living memory; learn about the lives of significant people of the past; understand the methods of historical enquiry and be able to ask and answer questions. We endeavour to ensure that all children enjoy and love learning about history by gaining this knowledge and skills, not only through classroom experiences, but also with the use of fieldwork and educational visits.
