History lessons provide our children with a high-quality education which will inspire their curiosity, build their knowledge of the past – both in relation to the local area and the wider world. The teaching of history will enable children to develop an understanding of chronology and the major changes that have occurred throughout time. We will help children to develop knowledge of history in the local context and as well as national and international issues. In turn, this creates a sense of identity within our current multicultural society.


Pupils will learn to:

  • Think critically
  • Use evidence to ask historical questions that inspire and ignite interest in the past
  • Learn about key events and the impact they had on the local area
  • Know and understand significant historical terms, e.g. empire, civilisation, parliament, hierarchy
  • Make connections, compare and contrast and to create structured accounts about the past
  • Gain knowledge of other cultures and civilisations
