At Tyldesley Primary School, our history curriculum, from EYFS to Year 6, aims to inspire, foster and develop curiosity in our children, to ask questions and learn more about Britain’s past and that of the wider world.
We believe it is important for our children to develop a sense of identity through learning about the past and we want them to know how history has shaped their own lives. We aim to deliver a progressive curriculum, accessible to all, that will maximise outcomes so that they will develop a chronological framework to help them make sense of new knowledge they acquire. It will allow them to understand the process of change and see how we arrived here and help make sense of present day.
Our curriculum is structured in a way that allows children to make links between current and previous learning. Long term plans make comparisons between historical periods previously taught, developing children’s chronological knowledge and understanding and using appropriate historical vocabulary. We want every child to know more, remember more and understand more. Our history lessons focus on how we can work as historians: asking questions, thinking critically, weighing evidence, sifting arguments and developing perspective and judgment.
