Introduction to History across our school
The History curriculum has been developed to ensure coverage of the National Curriculum. It follows the programmes of study for each year and links to the knowledge, skills and understanding to ensure that learning is progressive and continuous. History is taught through historical enquiries to develop pupil`s historical vocabulary and questioning skills. This approach requires teachers to check on what children already know and then invite them to think of their own questions. It is hoped that History will be viewed as exciting and interesting.
The learning challenge concept is built around the principle of greater learner involvement in their work. Time for children to reflect or review their learning is central to the whole process.
