Curriculum Statement of intent for History
At Worthington, we through our History curriculum, want it to be accessible to all so that it maximises the outcomes for every child which enables them to know more, remember more and understand more. We wish to ignite the children's curiosity about the past in Britain and the wider world. Through finding out about how and why the world, our country, culture and local community have developed over time. The children will understand how the past influences the present.
History helps the children to develop the background of their growing sense of identity and a chronological framework for their knowledge of significant events and people. What they learn through their History studies can sway their decisions about personal choices, attitudes and values.
At Worthington our History curriculum is taught through Topics, which include, for example, The Great Fire of London in Foundation and Class One, The Romans in Class Two and Ancient Greece in Class Three. We teach the National curriculum, supported by clear skills and knowledge progression. This makes certain that skills and knowledge are built on year by year and sequenced appropriately to maximise learning for all children. It is important that the children develop progressive skills of a historian throughout their time at Worthington and do not just learn a series of facts about the past. During their time here, the children look at evidence, complete their own research by using the internet and other resources, where they interpret the evidence in order to come to their own conclusions. They gain the necessary skills to argue for their point of view; a skill that will help them in their adult life.
We believe that by the end of the children's time at Worthington the children will have developed:
