At Yohden Primary School, we aim to deliver history lessons that inspire pupils to want to know more about the past and to think and act as historians. We aim for our pupils to enjoy and love history by gaining knowledge from different time periods and eras, to use historical skills and to apply these to the knowledge they have already gained to make their own historical interpretations. Our approach to history ensures that historical skills are the key focus of the pupil’s learning whilst ensuring each topic is tailored around the pupil and what is significant to them. We aim to begin history teaching centred around the child and their experiences to history within living memory, to the ancient civilisations and finally to history post 1066. Our topics are designed in such a way that allows our pupils to relate back to prior learning and to link what they have previously learned to their current topic. We want our pupils to find similarities and differences, to understand continuity and change, cause and effect and to be able to use these skills within the chronology of our curriculum.
