At Grove Wood Primary we believe a high-quality history education will help pupils gain a coherent knowledge and understanding of Britain’s past and that of the wider world. The history topics covered should inspire pupils’ curiosity to know more about the past. Teaching will develop skills that equip pupils to ask perceptive questions, think critically, weigh evidence, sift arguments, and develop perspective and judgement. History helps pupils to understand the complexity of people’s lives, the process of change, the diversity of societies and relationships between different groups, as well as their own identity and the challenges of their time. Children will be able to remember information because they will group information based on the concept thresholds of;
- Investigate and interpret the past
- Build an overview of world history
- Understand chronology
- Communicate historically
At Grove Wood, all of the above will be enriched through visitors, trips and a range of artefacts and experiences to make history fun and memorable.
Please see our outlined history subject curriculum for the 2019/2020 school year.
