History Curriculum Aims and Intent
At Hall Green Infant School we provide our children with an exciting and creative History curriculum, which is taught through themes and topics. This approach to teaching and learning inspires our children and engages them in their learning. Our aim is for children to be explorers; asking questions like: What do you think...? Why do you think...? How do you think...?
Our History curriculum allows the children to be curious, playful and seek to delve beneath the surface of things. It allows our children to work in depth, giving them the time they need to consolidate learning. It also places direct experiences at the centre of our History curriculum and allows our children to become life-long learners. Pupils are encouraged to question their understanding of the past allowing them to enjoy all that History has to offer.
Through the use of artefact and exciting trips, pupils gain an in-depth understanding of significant events in British and local history as well as appreciating how things change over time. We believe the study of History inspires children’s curiosity, encourages them to ask critical questions and enables them to have a better understanding of the society in which they live and that of the wider world. It also helps children gain a sense of their own identity within a social, political, cultural and economic background. Without History, there would be no future!
