History

History inspires in pupils a curiosity and fascination about the past. Children learn to build up a coherent, chronological narrative whilst being able to make connections, draw contrasts and analyse trends between different historical eras. They study the history of their locality in detail and use this to contextualise significant people and events in world history. Children learn to ask perceptive questions, weigh evidence and arguments and develop perspective and judgement.

History teaching develops children’s cultural capital to understand the complexity of people’s lives and the diversity of societies and perspectives. They see their own identity and the challenges of their time as part of a wider historical backdrop. What they learn through history can influence their decisions about personal choices, attitudes and values giving them courage and hope for the future.
