'The more you know about the past, the better prepared you are for the future.'
'History is a pack of lies about events that never happened told by people who weren't there.'
During history lessons in our school you will see:
children who ask historical questions and present findings from historical sources with the use of appropriate vocabulary. Our children are taught to question the validity of historical sources.
children who work collaboratively on historical projects and investigations.
children who are able to present the results of their historical investigations in creative ways using a range of media and technological aids.
children who understand that historical issues are still important and have repercussions for people today (e.g. holocaust, the slave trade).
children who able to see both sides of a historical debate and who can empathise with people from the past, commenting on their motivations etc.
children who have an awareness of historical time periods and a clear chronological 'overview' of historical periods from a range of countries / cultures. Our children are taught about key figures from the past and their impact on the wider culture.
children who show pride in crafting historical arguments during debate etc.. Our children are taught the skills required to present work to a high standard. Teachers will teach research skills to ensure that children understand that some sources of information can be flawed.
