Our history curriculum is designed to give pupils a broad knowledge of the world and the events that have shaped how we know it. The coverage ensures that children acquire a basic knowledge of the events in the first year of the milestone coverage and extend into a deeper understanding as they move into the second year of the milestone. There is an emphasis on building key skills that can be used in various ways to further the learning and make comparisons between different historical events. We do this by focusing on key concepts which include interpreting the past, building an overview, communicating historically and understanding chronology. We look at big questions that the children will be able to develop answers to as they move through the history curriculum.
