History

At Heaton Park Primary School, we have a deep and broad History curriculum which we hope will inspire curiosity and motivate children to become inquisitive historians who want to find out more! Guided by the ‘National Curriculum History Programmes of Study’, we have designed an exciting and detailed curriculum which aims to ensure that children have a coherent, chronological knowledge of key historical time periods, events and people from Great Britain and around the world.

We understand that progression of skills from the EYFS to Year 6 is key, and so our History topics are planned with this in mind to ensure that children build on their prior knowledge and achieve clear learning outcomes by the end of each history topic. In every history topic, children are taught important key facts, dates and vocabulary and the appropriate background knowledge.

We plan to support children’s ability to engage in historical inquiry, to understand links between time periods and events, to think critically and to ask questions and challenge ideas. In our vibrant curriculum, a wide range of texts and resources are used to engage our learners and we incorporate lots of visits, trips and themed days to enhance learning in history and all subjects.
