History Key Stage 1

Curriculum Co-ordinator: Catherine Elliot

History offers children the chance to develop a sense of their identity and place in the world. They start to recognise the distinction between the present and the past in their own and other people’s lives. They begin to develop an understanding of chronology and the influence of past events. Children are taught how to find out about the past from a range of sources of information and practical experiences. They learn through field trips to historical buildings and sites, stories, performance workshops, dressing up in historical costumes and examining historical artefacts and photographs. They are encouraged to communicate their knowledge in a variety of ways, such as role play, cookery, art and model-making, I.C.T, discussion and writing.
