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?’.

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

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.
