History

Statement of Intent:

Our History curriculum is designed to develop knowledge and understanding of chronology and of significant local, national and global events.  The curriculum enables children to develop an understanding of the lives and experiences of different people in the context of broader historical narratives.  It enables them to think critically about the challenges facing peoples of the world during different periods of history, appraising decisions made and considering how we can learn from history’s mistakes. 

The ‘Big Ideas’:

The ‘Big Ideas’ in our History curriculum are: chronology, innovation , significance and legacy.  These form an integral part of the development of skills and the learning of key concepts in this area of the curriculum.
