Our History curriculum is currently being redesigned based upon research of how children learn best, make sense of their learning and construct links that build upon and revise previous learning. We started to implement our Geography curriculum in term 3 therefore have adapted our curriculum coverage grids to ensure children do not repeat topics and to ensure coverage of the National Curriculum. 


Our intent for our new curriculum

Through History, we aim to enrich the lives and experiences of our children through a progressively sequenced curriculum. Our curriculum encompasses powerful knowledge and deep learning within an investigative framework whilst building upon subject specific vocabulary, concepts and skills.


The History Curriculum

Knowledge and skills are progressively sequenced so that new learning builds upon prior knowledge and skills. An overarching question frames the theme with individual lessons planned around questions constructed to promote subject specific concepts, vocabulary and skills. Every lesson includes retrieval of knowledge, which is supported by a knowledge organiser, carefully constructed to include the powerful knowledge that every child will access and learn.


History Teaching

Teaching will build upon children’s prior knowledge and support them to see the coherent narrative of the each subject. Visits and artefacts will be used to give children memorable and authentic experiences and lessons will be designed to be creative and engaging.
