Through a varied curriculum, we aim to equip children with the knowledge and skills to answer thoughtful questions on important moments in history. We see the importance in opening children’s eyes to the local area, educating them about how the surrounding area has changed through time. Our curriculum allows the children to revisit themes in different topics, offering a new context to the meaning of the word. Through this range of historical topics, we endeavour to make children aware of the wider world and not to repeat the mistakes of their ancestors. We believe in the importance of seeing real history in person, arranging ambitious trips that aim to bring the history to life. Children depart from our school with a secure timeline of prehistory through to the modern day and a solid understanding of different periods of history that can then be built on in secondary school.
