    History

    Our curriculum for history aims to inspire pupils' curiosity to know more about local, regional, national and international history. Pupils develop the chronological, enquiry and interpretation skills needed to understand the history of Britain and the wider world as a coherent narrative, from the earliest times to the present day. Pupils achieve this by asking perceptive questions, thinking critically, weighing evidence, sifting arguments, and developing perspective and judgement. Through learning about significant events and individuals from the past, pupils gain an understanding of the complexity of people's lives, the process of change, the diversity of societies and relationships between different groups, as well as their own identity and the challenges of their time.

    Lessons are taught using a cross-curricular approach, although some skills may be taught discretely should they not link to the cross curricular topics being taught. Cross-curricular themes with a strong historical emphasis include: Holidays; Buildings; Celebrations; Transport; Myths And Legends; Airports; Chocolate; Circus; Monarchs; Romans; Moving People; Myths and Legends; The Luddites and Ancient Civilisations.

    Pupils will be taught:
