Our History curriculum aims to to develop children’s experiences and understanding of History, inspiring and igniting curiosity about the wider world.
The document below shows a sequential, progressive pathway that a History unit and lesson may follow. The key elements which we believe are important to incorporate into our History lessons are highlighted in this pathway in order to: recall, deepen and build on previous learning to secure key concepts.
Our Progressive History Curriculum
To ensure children are taught and remember the appropriate knowledge and skills relating to History we have created a whole school progressive breakdown of the national curriculum expectations, this draws on the skills and knowledge being taught across all subject areas and hopes to contribute to the development of key concepts and themes in a deep and connected way.
Subject Specific Vocabulary
Our History curriculum will ensure all children are not only taught subject specific vocabulary but also provide opportunities for them to use such language within the correct context with confidence and fluency.
Age Year Group Breakdown
To ensure the highest emphasis is placed on both the teaching and the learning of new knowledge and skills we have also clarified when it will take place within our topics and the subject specific gains our children will make in terms of what they will know and be able to do.
