Within the Early Years the children are introduced to historical enquiry by incorporating their understanding of other subject areas and how these can be applied to the passage of time.
In Key stage one, learning is focused on changes within living memory and goes on to consider changes that have happened beyond the children’s living memory. They begin to develop an understanding that significant people in history have changed our lives today. Children also learn about the history of their locality including events, people and places.
At Key Stage 2 the children continue to develop a sense of chronology while studying various periods of history including the Stone Age, Ancient Greece, The Roman Empire and additional themes in British history beyond 1066. Children build on previous years of learning about the history of the local community and deepen their understanding by considering periods in history that have shaped the locality.
