'The more you know about the past, the better prepared you are for the future.'




Our high-quality history curriculum at Broadmeadow aims to ignite a fascination about our world’s past. By carefully designing a programme of study which is taught chronologically across the key stage, children will become historians and develop a chronological understanding, a sense of perspective and a motivation to ask ‘why?’.


Through inspiring and challenging themes, children discover how and why our local community, Britain and the world have developed over time and how the past influences the present.


Through our teaching of history, we aim to:

  • Ensure every child has the opportunity to study history in a way that allows them to investigate and think critically
  • Broaden children’s horizons and challenge preconceived ideas which will allow them to develop their personal choices, attitudes and values
  • Develop life skills which will prepare them for secondary school and beyond.



Big Questions


Our curriculum has been designed using Big Questions across each term. Links are made between pupil's learning in History and Geography. Below is a map of which questions are covered in each year group

Progression of Procedural Knowledge


Our spiral curriculum ensures that key historical skills/procedural knowledge are revisited and built on across the Key Stage. Click the link below to see what this looks like in each year group.

Knowledge Organisers


Knowledge organisers are a summary of the key facts and essential knowledge that pupils will be taught in a particular unit of work. Our knowledge organisers are not a comprehensive and exhaustive list of all that could be known but rather a summary of the knowledge that teaching will focus on. These documents help teachers to think hard about what will be taught, how it will be revisited and how it can be expressed; help children to recognise key learning and return to it often; and help parents/carers to have a really clear understanding of what their child is learning in different areas of the curriculum.
