History Vision Statement
We believe that learning about significant events and people in History should lay the foundations for an enquiring and questioning mind. The breadth of historical knowledge the pupil are given and the exposure to how life was in the past, aims to motivate the children to develop an enquiring mind and to ask questions such as how life today came about. We also believe this inspires the 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. We will teach children the skills to be a good historian; how to research and gather information, develop their skills of enquiry and analysis as well as starting to question information gathered and its reliability. We believe that educational visits to historical study enhance and enthuse pupil’s learning by bringing to life classroom knowledge.
