History Curriculum Intent
Intent Through our history curriculum we aim to give our pupils, a strong coherent understanding of Britain’s past and that of the wider world. We want to inspire our children to be curious about events that have previously happened, able to ask questions and think critically, to enable them to make a judgement about what has happened. Through our teaching of history we aim to provide a basis for the children to become confident and independent learners and to have a secure knowledge and understanding of how people lived in the past and understand important historical events through a chronological order.
History teaching offers opportunities to:
- develop pupils’ sense of identity through learning about the development in Britain, Europe and the World;
- introduce pupils to what is involved in understanding and interpreting the past.
