History Intent
In our history teaching we stimulate the children’s interest and understanding about the life of people who lived in the past and the knowledge about key facts in history and time periods. Using an enquiry approach children are encouraged to ask questions and develop a sense of chronology. The children will learn to value their own and other people’s cultures in modern multicultural Britain and, by considering how people lived in the past, they become respectful citizens. Through regular retrieval practice, children retain knowledge from current and previous learning.

Our children's thoughts about history:
"History takes you to places that you have never been before"
"It helps me understand what happened before me"
"It makes you feel fortunate like in The Great Fire of London"
"I loved Florence Nightingale visiting our classroom because we learned so much"
"Role play makes history so fun"
"Artefacts help me understand the past"
