‘A people without the knowledge of their past history, origin and culture is like a tree without roots’

Marcus Garvey

Our History curriculum aims to inspire children’s curiosity and encourage critical thinking about the past. Through the analysis of evidence and evaluation of a range of sources, pupils will ask questions about the past, and consider how human mistakes, experiences and achievements have shaped our world and impacted the way we live today. The curriculum will help pupils to gain an understanding of their place in the world using social, political, cultural and economic events which has built our history.

We will examine the children’s own personal history, and develop their sense of chronology throughout the study of topics through EYFS, Key Stages 1 and 2.  Our History Curriculum will immerse pupils in historical study through high quality teaching, inspirational trips and knowledgeable visitors.
