Our history curriculum has been carefully planned to ensure continued progression following assessment of children’s current starting points, identifying their strengths and any gaps in their learning. History presents many opportunities to re-visit and build upon existing knowledge and skills, with planning built around its key concepts across KS1 and KS2.
Feedback and assessment by class teachers informs the review of planning to ensure that gaps in crucial knowledge and skills are identified and if necessary objectives adapted to support children in their learning.
It is our vision at St Anne’s that our children should have positive attitudes towards and great enthusiasm for History.
Children are encouraged to be interested in and observant about the historical and social aspects of their local environment, British and World history.
By the time the children leave us at the end of year six we aim for them to be confident to ask questions, provide explanations based on evidence, put forward opinions and present their own point of view. Through the study of history we will equip them with investigative and enquiry skills alongside the ability to analyse, evaluate and present evidence competently.
We hope that our children will always ask the question ‘why’ and take with them a deep respect for the values and cultures of people represented in the past and present, alongside an appreciation of their own identity and heritage.
