History

"the more you know about the past, the better prepared you are for the future." theodore roosevelt

our vision

Our vision is that our teaching of History will help pupils to gain coherent knowledge and understanding of Britain's past and that of the wider world.

INTEnt

We aim for it to inspire pupils’ curiosity about the past whilst building on their knowledge of historical events. We also aim to enable children to ask perceptive questions, think critically, weigh evidence, sift arguments, and develop perspective and judgement. 

 

Implementation

Through blocks, we teach the key knowledge and skills, ensuring progression across topics and year groups. Children gain chronological understanding of time periods.

Cross curricular links are carefully considered with creative opportunities to complement the curriculum within the arts, English and drama.

Practical activities run alongside traditional learning to further embed knowledge of the time period.

Inclusion and equality is considered when thinking about key historical figures to study and role models within the wider community.

Opportunities to engage with children's curiosities are taken and consideration into how greater depth will be taught is always taken.

Westbury Park follows the Rising Stars scheme of learning.
