History at Withymoor
At Withymoor, we aim to provide a high quality history curriculum which inspires curiosity and fascination about Britain’s past and that of the wider world. It is our intent that children will have a secure and broad knowledge of their local area heritage and understand how it connects to wider society as well as regional, national and international events. Through studies of significant people, events and time periods, children will secure their understanding of chronology and develop a context for their growing sense of identity. They will compare and contrast, making connections with themes in history, as well as evaluating the impact and influence through time. Through drama, role play, artefacts and use of interactive digital media, our children will be immersed in historical contexts allowing them to develop the necessary skills to ask perceptive questions, think critically, weigh evidence, sift arguments, and develop perspective and judgement.
Our History Overview and Progression document outlines our intentions for the teaching of a high quality History curriculum at Withymoor. It also includes progression information and details how we ensure that our curriculum is inclusive.
