History helps pupils to understand how events from the past shape our lives today and our future, providing learners with a sound knowledge of the history of Britain and beyond. Our lessons help pupils to build an understanding of the complexity of people’s lives, how and why change occurs, the diversity of societies across the globe and the challenges of our time.
Our pupils learn and understand the history of Britain from the earliest times to the present day including how Britain has influenced and been influenced by the wider world. Children explore ancient civilisations including the rise and fall of empires from across the world. Lessons focus upon understanding historical concepts such as continuity and change, cause and consequence, similarity and difference and use them to make connections and draw appropriate conclusions.
History is one of the subjects delivered within our ‘Cornerstones’ curriculum. The Cornerstones themes inspire pupils’ curiosity to know and understand more about the past.
