At St George’s School we want to bring the past alive for our children so they can compare and contrast the past to that of modern life. We want them to understand how and why things have changed and use a range of sources to find out about the past.
We follow the National Curriculum for history which identifies and groups subject objectives for KS1 and KS2.
The National Curriculum states that its purpose is to ‘help pupils gain a coherent knowledge and understanding of Britain’s past and that of the wider world,’ and we strive to ensure that all children develop this core knowledge and understanding whilst at St George’s.
History is taught through a topic based approach and gives pupils a chance to explore a wide range of sources from which the past may come alive. This allows links and connections to be made to other areas of the curriculum as children develop their knowledge and understanding.
