Our history curriculum is sequenced coherently so that children build on useful knowledge around various historical aspects and can develop their skills of critical thinking.
Through our History Curriculum at Broomfield, we are passionate about our children being: curious about the past, gaining a secure knowledge and understanding of Britain’s past and that of the wider world, becoming critical thinkers and understanding the process of change. Our History curriculum teaches our children to appreciate the diversity of societies and to understand their own identity.
These skills are embedded within history lessons and developed throughout their journey of the history curriculum through deeper learning. By the end of their primary education, our children will have a chronological understanding of British history from Stone Age to present day. They will be able to draw comparisons and make connections between different time periods and their own lives through their understanding of world history.
We strive to create a supportive and collaborative ethos for learning by providing investigative learning opportunities. Emphasis is beginning to be placed on analytical thinking which helps children gain a coherent knowledge and understanding of Britain’s past and that of the wider world.
