History lessons teach our students to have an awareness of what has happened to shape the world we live in today. Children will be encouraged to ask questions of events and individuals, good and bad, to support their understanding of the impact on Britain and the wider world. Children will develop their chronology skills to understand when a particular period began and ended or when an event occurred. Teaching of history will equip the children with the confidence and knowledge to think critically, evaluate evidence, make links between events and periods and to ask questions. Children will be supported to understand our complex history but appreciate the changes, diversity and relationships that have occurred across time.
