Our History topics


Our aims for history are:

  • To instill in the children a curiosity and understanding of events, places and people in various times and environments.
  • To develop an interest in the past and an appreciation of human achievements and aspirations.
  • To learn about the major events and changes in the history of our own country, and of the world, and how these events may have influenced our lives in Modern Britain.
  • To develop a knowledge of chronology within which the children can organise their understanding of the past.
  • To understand how the past was different from the present, with focus on people’s change in values and attitudes.
  • To engage children in the process of enquiry by equipping them with the skills required to interpret primary and secondary source materials.
  • To encourage children to form their own opinions on historical events and issues and be able to clearly explain their reasoning. 


There is a History focus each term for each year group; within each focus we aim to develop key skills including those of enquiry and interpretation and chronology.
