At Glade Primary School, we are passionate about stimulating our children’s interest and understanding about the life of people who lived in the past. Through our History Curriculum, we aim to make all children aware of the actions of important people in history and enable children to know about significant events in British history, whilst appreciating how things have changed over time. We want our children to develop a sense of identity, a cultural understanding. This enables our children to learn to value their own and other people’s cultures in modern multicultural Britain.
These skills are embedded within history lessons and developed throughout their journey of the history curriculum through deeper learning. By the end of their primary education, our children will have a chronological understanding of British history from Stone Age to present day. They will be able to draw comparisons and make connections between different time periods and their own lives through their understanding of world history such as the ancient civilisations of Greece. In History at our school, we will also give children opportunities to develop their skills of enquiry, investigation, analysis.
We strive to create a supportive and collaborative ethos for learning by providing investigative learning opportunities. Emphasis is beginning to be placed on analytical thinking which helps children gain a coherent knowledge and understanding of Britain’s past and that of the wider world.
