History is held in high regard at Roseberry Primary and Nursery School and it is our aim to instil a love of History in all our children. Studies are informed by the national curriculum and we aim to provide an interesting and varied curriculum that meets the needs of all backgrounds and abilities. We incorporate our area’s rich history into our curriculum structure, which is carefully designed to build upon prior knowledge and make links between different time periods.
We bring History to life through planned educational visits with the aim of enriching classroom-based learning and inspiring deeper interest in all pupils. Our aim is to inspire children’s curiosity and develop a chronological understanding about the past in our own country and the wider world. Children will ask and answer thoughtful questions, think critically, weigh evidence, sift arguments and develop perspective and judgement.
They will develop the knowledge, vocabulary and skills to understand the complexity of people’s lives, the process of change, the diversity of societies and relationships between different groups, as well as their own identity and the challenges of their time.
