Introduction to Curriculum

Why is it important to teach History?

Our pupils develop an understanding of the events in the past and how they have shaped the world they live in. They develop the enquiry skills, historical vocabulary and understanding of chronology that help them to explain the events in the past. They are given opportunities to pose their own questions and compare and contrast the past and present. Pupils are taught to understand how events in the past have influenced our lives today and how they could impact on the future. Through the teaching of history, pupils have the opportunity to apply many key skills from other areas of the curriculum.
