SUB-INTENT FOR HISTORY
History should aim to inspire pupils’ curiosity to learn more about the past. Key skills should be taught in order for children to ask perceptive questions and think critically about the information they have. They should learn to weigh evidence and sift arguments from a variety of historical sources and develop their perspective and judgement.
History should give children an insight into the complexities of people’s lives, the diversity of societies and the relationships between different groups. They should develop an understanding of the process of change and the ways in which this can be instigated and the consequences of changes throughout history. They should also build an awareness of their own identity and challenges of their time.
The history curriculum focusses on the progression of key skills throughout the primary years :
Below are three documents that detail the curriculum for HISTORY across the school:
The first document is the History learning in EYFS - under construction!
The second document is the full HIstory curriculum set out in year groups.
The third document are key objectives which the Subject Lead Guide has identified that they feel in their professional opinion the children must understand to develop a good understanding of their subject.
(N.B. The order of the key objectives are in constant review to ensure secure and relevant learning links and ensure progressive understanding)
