The teaching and learning of history is through planned themes which are incorporated into an overall curriculum framework. History fires pupils’ curiosity about the past in Britain and the wider world. Pupils consider how the past influences the present, what past societies were like and what beliefs and cultures influenced people’s actions. As they do this, pupils develop a chronological framework for their knowledge of significant events and people. In history, pupils find evidence, weigh it up and reach their own conclusions. To do this they are encouraged to research, evaluate evidence, and engage in active discussion - skills that will prepare them for adult life.
