History

Children are interested in the world around them and its past.  History is about real people who lived and real events which happened in the past.  The study of evidence about the past and a subject concerned with sequence, time and chronology.  History lessons provide a valuable contribution and enable children to develop a sense of identity and a cultural understanding based on their historical heritage.

We aim to help all children to enjoy finding out about the past and in doing so, develop a sense of History through:

  • •    A concern for truth and accuracy.
  • •    Raising historical questions and thinking by participation in historical studies, enquiries and investigations.
  • •    Using a wide range of resources (including both primary and secondary sources) and involving other curriculum areas.
  • •    Becoming increasingly independent in their own learning.
  • •    Encouragement to give and justify their opinions, record and report in a variety of ways, including computing technology.
