Our aim in History is to excite children about the possibility of discovering the past for themselves and engaging critically, creatively and empathetically with the beliefs, struggles, and achievements of the past, both in Britain and the wider world. We strive to recognise the legacies of history, both positive and negative, and encourage the children to make connections between then and now, here and there.


Throughout Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2, our children learn about various aspects of British, world and local history.
