At Aldwyn Primary School it is our intention that motivation and enjoyment should underpin the teaching of history. We hope to provide interesting, challenging and enjoyable experiences that arouse our children's interest in the past, develop curiosity for the way people used to live and recognise the influences of previous ages on our lives today.
It is our aim to instil a love of history in all our children by providing a broad and balanced view of the history of Britain and the wider world. From EYFS up to the end of KS2, the children will be taught about various historical events and figures and where they fit on a history timeline.
The history curriculum intends to provide appropriate subject knowledge, skills and understanding as set out in the National Curriculum. We want children to enjoy and love learning about history both inside and outside of the classroom.
As with all our foundation curriculum areas we use the opportunities provided to develop English and maths skills in a more realistic and valuable way.
