History inspires our pupils to be curious about the past. Through studying history, our pupils develop their understanding of chronology; learning how peoples' lives have shaped Britain and how Britain has been influenced by the wider world and in turn influenced world history. History enables our children to gain an historical perspective, by understanding their place in the world; how their families and community may have been affected by wide world events. They learn to understand connections from the local to the international. Our pupils gain an understanding of historical terms and learn to use these to frame questions which demonstrate an understanding of concepts such as cause and consequence. To promote historical enquiry we ensure that the children have a wide range of experiences.
