A high-quality history education will help pupils gain knowledge and understanding of Britain’s past and that of the wider world.
It should inspire History equips pupils to ask perceptive questions, think critically, weigh evidence, sift arguments, and develop perspective and judgement.
History helps pupils to understand the complexity of people’s lives, the process of change, the diversity of societies and relationships between different groups, as well as their own identity and the challenges of their time.
During our History lessons, pupils develop an awareness of the past, using common words and phrases relating to the passing of time.
They know where the people and events they study fit within a chronological framework and identify similarities and differences between ways of life in different periods.
They use a wide vocabulary of everyday historical terms.
They ask and answer questions, choosing and using parts of stories and other sources to show that they know and understand key features of events.
They understand some of the ways in which we find out about the past and identify different ways in which it is represented.
At Hall Green Infant and Nursery School we enjoy finding out about the past. We learn from school trips, from researching different events and we enjoy having workshops in school. We have a cross-curricular approach to learning when covering our History topics and the children thoroughly enjoy a wide variety of activities.
