At Primrose Hill, children are taught History every term as a stand alone lesson. Children are taught about the many events and people from the past such as Ancient Egyptians, the Victorians and the Maya. We also aim to link our history curriculum to our local area. We have many amazing places around us that are steeped in history. Children are also taught a range of skills to allow them to become amazing historians alongside the knowledge. These skills will be taught in every year group, every term:
- Historical Knowledge
- Interpretations of History
- Historical Enquiry
- Organisation and Communication
We aim to ensure all Primrose Hill children gain an excellent understanding of Britain’s past and of the wider world. We want to allow our children to develop their curiosity and want to know more about the past. We want them to ask perceptive questions, think critically, carefully consider evidence, and to develop perspective and judgement. History helps our children understand their identity, the complexity of their lives and the diversity of our societies.
