“History is who we are and why we are the way we are.”
At Heyhouses we have designed a curriculum to enable all children to be Historians. We aim to engage children with a rich curriculum that inspires curiosity about both Britain and the wider world. Importantly, We want children to love learning about history by gaining knowledge and skills, not just through experiences in the classroom, but also with the use of fieldwork, visitors into school and educational visits.
Our pupils develop their History skills in line with the national curriculum programme of study for History. The foundation for these skills is the Early Years Framework which provides the building blocks for all future learning in History.
Our learning explores local, national and world history, providing rich experiences. We aim to develop an understanding of chronology, events, people and changes as well as communication, enquiry and interpretation skills. As part of our vocabulary rich curriculum, children will have a deep understanding of historical words and phrases. We aim for children to leave Heyhouses as enthusiastic, confident and skilled historians ready for the Key Stage 3 History curriculum.
