Subject Leaders - Mrs S Wheeler & Miss Kirby


Our history curriculum is designed to be inspiring and give the children a wide range of experiences but at the same time ensuring that key concepts and knowledge are covered effectively. Historical skills are developed over the years through a programme of revisiting and extending and these key skills are woven through all units, to enable the children to become more skilled historians. We ensure sufficient knowledge and skills for future learning are taught. We plan in order that all pupils learn to ask perceptive questions, think critically, weigh evidence, sift arguments, and develop perspective and judgement.

Our children benefit from lots of trips and visits linked to the history curriculum such as sharing memories of toys gone by with local residents of a care home, West Stow Anglo-Saxon village, the Stone Age Celtic Harmony Camp and many in-school visits from History Off the Page.
