Our history curriculum is designed to enable children to grasp a solid understanding of chronology, world history and the use of evidence. They do this by studying a range of people and events from the past. Historical enquiries enable pupils to develop their disciplinary knowledge to become good historians.
Our history curriculum identifies the essential knowledge children are expected to learn. Themes are built upon over time, so that children can build schema by connecting information and facts across and within their units of study.
Our units of study go beyond national curriculum expectations, by incorporating a strong focus on Manchester. In each year group, children learn about something from the past which had an impact on the city of Manchester: personal history and a significant person in KS1 and the Romans, Victorians, World War I and World War II in KS2.
