Intent in History


Our History curriculum follows the core knowledge and understanding of the National Curriculum. At Stella Maris we know that understanding the past is vital to paving the way for the future and so our  History curriculum is designed to encourage children to ask questions, enquire and explore the topics.  We use cross curricular links with other subjects such as Geography and Science,  believing there should be strong links between different subjects if children’s learning is to be effective.


 Our aim is to enable our children to deepen their understanding of History – chronologically, socially and politically. We want them to be able to place historical events in the correct context and to interpret them reflectively. We want them to have an understanding of the range of evidence available for the study of history. Above all, we want them to be curious about the past, both in Britain and in the wider world.
