During the children’s time at school, they will learn about a range of historical periods, people, places and events. They will study their local area as well as other countries around the world. They will be provided with opportunities to carry out research about these different times and use this to develop their historical enquiry skills. When researching, the children will be encouraged to use a variety of sources to gather information and use while investigating.
The history curriculum is delivered through the termly phase project learning which is driven by confidence, initiative and diversity. A history based project will be studied each year and is centred on a key enquiry question which is explored in different historical time periods and contexts. This enquiry is underpinned by the consideration of concepts which are applied to the different contexts and time periods explored.
Take the opportunity to look back at your own timeline of events and family trees.
