We teach history as a separate subject supporting the childrens’ understanding that we are learning about the past. In Key Stage 1 the aim is to secure childrens’ understanding of the passing of time and the similarities and differences between ways of life in different time periods. In Key Stage 2 we study significant events of British, local and world history to secure knowledge and understanding of world historical chronology. We believe this is more meaningful for our students, making them more motivated and leading to a higher level of understanding for the child.
