We aim to give children a high-quality history education which will help them gain an understanding of the past and develop key historical skills. We encourage children to think critically and examine evidence and arguments in order to develop their own judgement and opinion. Our history curriculum also gives children the opportunity to compare and contrast life in the past and to examine why and how things have changed.
The key historical skills we teach are:
- chronological understanding
- historical knowledge and understanding
- interpretations of history
- historical enquiry
- organisation and communication
