History Curriculum

Intent

History teaching offers children the opportunity to develop a sense of identity through learning about the development of Britain, Europe and the world. It helps children to understand and interpret the past and recognise its relevance in their lives.

 

 

At St Joseph’s, we aim to:

 

  1. Know and understand the history of the British Isles

  2. Know and understand aspects of the history of the wider world

  3. Gain understanding of historical vocabulary

  4. Understand how to find out about the past

  5. Begin to make connections between periods in history

  6. Understand how and why changes take place over time
