The history curriculum engenders a curiosity about Britain’s past and that of the wider world. Children are encouraged to ask questions, think critically, weigh evidence and develop judgement in a range of historical contexts. They are given the freedom to explore their own questions, carry out research and manage extended tasks. The children will learn about the lives of individuals and groups of people from the past, learning to empathise with different people’s viewpoints and analysing important historical events. Children will make links between these events and themselves, thinking about principles that can be applied to their own lives and understanding how past events have shaped the modern world.

Listen to our children talk about what they've learnt during our history curriculum.
