At St. Mary’s CE Primary School, we aim to deliver History in a way which inspires our pupils’ curiosity. A high-quality history education helps pupils gain a coherent knowledge and understanding of Britain’s past and the history of the wider world. Our History curriculum will encourage pupils to ask perceptive questions, think critically, weigh evidence and analyse sources to develop perspective and judgement. Ultimately, we want our children to see themselves as historians. We aim for pupils to leave St. Mary’s with a sense of identity, noting how events and significant people through history have helped influence or shape the lives we live today.
Our history curriculum is progressive from when the children start school to when they leave. It builds on knowledge and skills so they are ready for the next phase of their education.
We have created these learning maps to help support children and parents know what key knowledge is going to be taught in our geography curriculum. They also show how it links to previous and future learning.
