The teaching of History at Everton Heath Primary School aims to stimulate pupils’ interest and help them to gain a coherent knowledge and understanding of Britain’s past and that of the wider world. Through the lessons they will gain an insight into how the past has influence our lives today, equip them to ask perceptive questions, think critically, weigh evidence and develop their perspective and judgements. History helps pupils to understand the complexity of people’s lives, the process of change, the diversity of societies and relationships between different groups. This insight aims to create a cultural identity and foster respect for others.
Through the historical enquiry process of examining evidence, analysis and posing questions, pupils are engaged and proactive in their learning, fostering independence and problem solving.
Our History units of work are based on the National Curriculum and cover a range of British and World history. Our History Curriculum teaching focuses on the key themes of Governance and Power, Gods and Beliefs, Daily Life and ensure that the children develop their chronological understanding. We aim to achieve this by developing planning and subject expertise, with access to a wide range of resources and artefacts as well as visits to various appropriate historical sites.
