The curriculum has been designed so that our pupils study a range of different history topics across each Key Stage in order to meet the National Curriculum outcomes. In Key Stage One children learn to understand about then and now, making comparisons about people and times in History as well as a significant event. This is extended in Key Stage Two where pupils begin to look at British History in chronological order as well as other key periods in History. There is time to discover how key events have impact on life today. Through these topics they have the opportunity to look at local history as well as historical periods across the world. Progression of learning is planned for and prior learning (both knowledge and skill) is built in to each topic. Where possible cross curricular links are built in to our topics too.
Learning is made interesting with a variety of different approaches in practical learning oportunities, where possible bringing History to life experiential learning activities.
