At Widden Primary School our aim is for our pupils to gain an appreciation and understanding of the past and the curiosity and motivation to find out more.
Through their study of history pupils will develop their understanding of chronology so that they ‘gain a coherent knowledge and understanding of Britain’s past and that of the wider world.’
Pupils learn through an enquiry approach through research, analysis and evaluation using primary and secondary historical sources. They will gain an insight into how people around the world used to live and appreciate how interpretations may differ.
Pupils will develop an understanding of historical concepts such as change, consequence and significance. They will develop their vocabulary to allow them to communicate their understanding using subject specific vocabulary.
