Together we grow in God’s love, learning to be the best we can be.

History

During the early years, the children begin their study of History by looking at their own past and that of their families. This also includes an introduction to leading figures in History through stories. At Key Stage Two the children are taught about key periods in the history of Britain. They also study an ancient civilisation, a past non-European society and undertake a local history study.

 

We aim to teach the children in Key Stage 1, to:

  • Speak and write about familiar and famous people and events from the recent and more distant past, using everyday terms concerned with the passing of time
  • Distinguish between aspects of their own everyday lives and the lives of people in the past
  • Identify some ways in which the past is represented
  • Find out about the past by asking and answering questions using a range of sources of information
 

We aim to teach the children in Key Stage 2, to:

  • Describe the contribution made by people, events and developments in the recent and more distant history of Britain and other countries, and make links across the periods of history studied
  • Give some reasons for, and results of, main events and changes and provide explanations about why people in the past acted as they did
  • Find out about the past by asking and answering questions using a range of sources of information
  • Give some explanations fot the different ways the past is represented and interpreted
  • Record their knowledge and understanding about the past in a variety of ways using dates and historical terms
