History is cohesively taught through the thematic curriculum so that links can be made to make the learning experience authentic and knowledge can be acquired through the building of schema. The curriculum has been designed to stimulate pupils’ curiosity about phenomena and events in the world around them with a mix of practical and theory to enable pupils to know more and remember more.
The history is built into the units that ignites the curiosity about the past to enable our pupils to work as historians and develop their historical vocabulary, chronological understanding, knowledge and interpretation skills and their historical enquiry skills. Each unit being planned includes opportunities for children to investigate, handle artefacts, watch historical footage, take part in role play activities, visit relevant sites and museums and where appropriate, experience oral history, engaging with historical characters and ways of life.
