History Curriculum Vision

  • Essential Characteristics of Historians

    Through our History curriculum we will encourage children to develop the characteristics of an historian:

    • to think critically about history and communicate ideas
    • respect for historical evidence and the ability to make robust and critical use of it to support explanations and judgments.
    • a sense of curiosity about the past and an understanding of how and why people interpret the past in different ways.
    • embrace challenging activities, including opportunities to undertake high-quality research across a range of topics.
    • knowledge and understanding of people, events, and contexts from a range of historical periods and of historical concepts and processes.
    • to think, reflect, debate, discuss and evaluate the past, formulating and refining questions and lines of enquiry.
