At Yewdale Primary School we teach a history curriculum that provides opportunities for all pupils to delve deeper and make connections to the past and the world in which they live in. History aims to inspire children to actively explore different periods of time as well as cultures, in order to paint a bigger picture of how life today came about. We teach children the skills required to be a good historian; how to research and gather information, as well as how to question information gathered for authenticity, perspective and reliability in order to gain understanding of the key historical concepts. Children have access to a wide range of resources to aid them in their discovery, and opportunities across the curriculum to present, test and evaluate their historical knowledge.
Our vision is that all pupils develop an increased confidence and understanding of historical facts, as well as an understanding of its influence on our day to day lives which will enable them to become confident and well-educated citizens within our society.
