“We are not makers of History. We are made by History.”

-Martin Luther King Jr.


Aims and Objectives

The national curriculum for history aims to ensure that all pupils:

  • know and understand the history of these islands, from the earliest times to the present day: how people’s lives have shaped this nation and how Britain has influenced and been influenced by the wider world
  • know and understand significant aspects of the history of the wider world
  • understand the methods of historical enquiry, including how evidence is used to make historical claims, and to understand how and why contrasting arguments and interpretations of the past have been constructed
  • gain historical perspective by placing their growing knowledge into different contexts: understanding the connections between local, regional, national and international history


Each year group learns about a different period of history during our Back In Time theme. This includes learning about significant events, important figures and the daily lives of people. We learn about the history of Britain as well as the rest of the world.
