History

 

Learning in history helps children gain a clear knowledge and understanding of Britain's past and that of the wider world.  Children develop a curiosity to know more about the past, and are supported in asking questions, thinking critically, considering evidence and developing their own judgement.  History helps pupils to understand the complexity of people's lives and the diversity of societies, as well as their own identity and heritage.
