Our History curriculum should support children in developing a love of the subject of History. We want them to have no limits to what their ambitions are and grow up wanting to be archivists, museum curators, archaeologists or research analysts.
Our History curriculum should stimulate all children’s interest and understanding about the life of people who lived in the past, it should teach children a sense of chronology, in order to develop a sense of identity and a cultural understanding based on their historical heritage. This should enable our children to learn to value their own and other people’s cultures in modern multicultural Britain.
Our History curriculum aims to make all children aware of the actions of important people in history and enable children to know about significant events in British history, whilst appreciating how things have changed over time.
It will also aim to ensure our children understand how Britain developed as a society, contributing to their understanding of their country of residence.
Furthermore, our History curriculum will aim to teach children about aspects of local, British and Ancient history. This wider awareness should lead to the children having some knowledge of historical development in the wider world.
We believe that by allowing the children to understand the importance and enjoyment of History through different opportunities, they will become enthused learners in History, with opportunities to develop their skills of enquiry, investigation and analysis.
