History

At Cookridge Holy Trinity Primary School, as an inclusive school, we aim to give all children a high quality History education which provides them with a coherent knowledge of the history of Britain and the wider world whilst also inspiring their curiosity about the past. Children will experience teaching which enables them to ask perceptive questions, think critically, explore evidence, examine arguments, and develop perspective and judgement about people and events from the past.

(National Curriculum in England, History programme of study, 2014)

Aims

As a school our goal is to cover the National Curriculum aims in an engaging and meaningful way for every child. Therefore, children will be be taught through four broad objectives:

  • To investigate and interpret the past.
  • To build and overview of world history.
  • To understand chronology.
  • To communicate historically and develop enquiry skills.
