History intent, implementation and impact statement.
Our intent is that our teaching of History will help pupils develop a coherent knowledge and understanding of Britain’s past and that of the wider world. We aim for it to inspire pupils’ curiosity about the past and to know more about the past. We aim to enable children to ask perceptive questions, think critically, weigh evidence, sift arguments, and develop perspective and judgement. Through the teaching of History, we endeavour to teach children to understand the complexity of people’s lives, the process of change, the diversity of societies and relationships between distinct groups, as well as their own identity and the challenges of their time.
To meet these objectives across the school we have a themed approach based on different topics that relate to the children and the National Curriculum aims.
History lessons focus on developing historical skills and children working as young historians. We intend for our children to have real life experiences and learn about history in an enquiry-based way. Links to other subject areas are also explored. The planning of learning always begins with what the children have learned previously, the skills and knowledge that needs to be taught and enrichment opportunities and opportunities to apply learning are carefully mapped.
Children will know more, remember more and understand more about History.
Children will understand and use the key skills of chronological understanding, knowledge and understanding of events in the past, Historical interpretation, Historical enquiry, organisation and communication.
All the children will make progress towards age related expectations in History.
