History equips children with the skills and knowledge to understand how the past shapes today’s world. At Barlow C.of E Primary School we want to enable children to actively explore History from the Early Years Foundation Stage right through to Year 6 so that they have a keen interest in the past and are inspired to know more. We teach children to make connections to the past through learning about our local history, including local significant figures as well as focussing on a range of historical periods in Britain and beyond. We encourage history skills through equipping children to ask questions, think critically, and look at evidence so that they are able to come to their own understanding and judgement of how the past shapes our thinking today.
We teach History in a variety of ways to capture the interest and skills of our children. We encourage regular reference to timelines and hands on experiences through trips and visits. We provide:
Our aim is to enable pupils to critically analyse and think carefully about how past events affect today and the future, History helps pupils to understand the complexity of people’s lives, the process of change, the diversity of societies and relationships between different groups. It also helps children gain a sense of their own identity within a social, political, cultural and economic background. The knowledge and skills acquired by the children enable history to enrich other areas of the curriculum and can provide a context for many other subjects.
