The history curriculum at High Street makes full use of resources within the immediate and wider local area enabling children to develop a deep understanding of the rich history of their locality contributing to children’s sense of self-worth. We follow the National Curriculum for History and we ensure that we are sensitive to children's interests; sparking their curiosity. We carefully plan our History curriculum to ensure it builds on previous learning, whilst being informed by current pedagogy.
Three Impacts of our History Curriculum:
- As a result of our History curriculum, children develop in to confident, independent historians with a deep understanding of their local and wider history.
- Children will know more, remember more and understand more about History. They will also be able to understand and use key skills of chronological ordering and their knowledge and understanding of events in the past, historical interpretation and historical enquiry.
- As historians, children will learn lessons from history to influence the decisions they make in their lives today and in the future.
