Implementation in History

By linking learning to a range of topics, children have opportunities to investigate and interpret the past, understand chronology, build an overview of Britain’s past as well as that of the wider world, and to be able to communicate historically. We develop children with the following essential characteristics to help them become historians:

  • An excellent knowledge and understanding of people, events and contexts from a range of historical periods, including significant events in Britain’s past;

  • The ability to think critically about history and communicate ideas confidently to a range of audiences;

  • The ability to support, evaluate and challenge their own and others’ views using historical evidence from a range of sources;

  • The ability to think, reflect, debate, discuss and evaluate the past by formulating and refining questions and lines of enquiry;

  • A respect for historical evidence and the ability to make critical use of it to support their learning;

  • A desire to embrace challenging activities, including opportunities to undertake high-quality research across a range of history topics;

  • A developing sense of curiosity about the past and how and why people interpret the past in different ways.

Our delivery of the History Curriculum is supported by a wide range of visits and experiences - a trip to the Globe Theatre in London, for example, and opportunities for role play and hands-on interrogation of historical evidence.
