History at St. George’s

At St. George’s pupils are given access to the past through structured teaching of important events in the history of Britain, Europe and other parts of the world. They are helped to build a clear chronological framework of the development of societies from ancient to modern times by making links across the different study units. They are given opportunities to investigate local history and to learn about and interpret the past from a range of primary sources.

 

The history curriculum at St George’s is distinctive and highly imaginative and has a clear and coherent rationale that underpins it; successfully securing the active interest and enthusiasm of all groups of pupils. It provides constant opportunities for discovery and challenge and for pupils to take greater responsibility for their learning.

The vibrant and varied curriculum ensures that pupils understand key historical concepts and can confidently articulate the place history has in their own lives, in society and in the modern world.

Elements of History are delivered to the Reception children through the Foundation Stage Curriculum (Knowledge & Understanding of the World) and are incorporated into the termly topics. The children explore places, people, communities and the world through their work and continuous provision.

 

In KS1 & KS2 History is taught through creative curriculum planning and some elements of History are also taught through cross-curricular topics e.g. literacy, history, ICT and role-play.
