Our History curriculum enables our children to gain knowledge and understanding of the past within our own locality, our country and the wider world. They will learn about the complexity of peoples’ lives, the diversity of societies and the relationships between different groups of people in the past. Through a detailed study of key knowledge from different historical periods, pupils will also develop an understanding of abstract historical terms and specific vocabulary.

History Knowledge Progression



We monitor and assess the impact of our history learning through both formative and summative assessments. Each lesson provides the teacher with the opportunity to assess the children against the learning objective, this may be through discussions with children or a more formal piece of work.  At the end of each unit children will be assessed on their understanding by completing a short assessment.
Through the delivery of our history curriculum, we expect the impact on our children to be:
  • Children are engaged, curious and resilient in History lessons and relish the challenge and opportunities for fun that the subject offers.
  • Children are critical and analytical in their thinking, making informed and balanced judgements based on their knowledge of the past.
  • Children are aware of how historical events have shaped the world today, including History at the local and personal level.
  • Children develop enquiry skills to pursue and investigate their own interests within a topic.
  • Children visit historically relevant sites and museums and learn from visitors to enhance their learning in History and create positive memories.
  • Children retain learning and explicitly make connections between what they have previously learned and what they are currently learning.
  • Children are able to articulate what they have learned in History and can describe significant periods, events and people from the past.
