History

Subject Lead: Mrs Stagg

Inspired with a love of learning

At Kimpton Primary, History is brought to life using our creative curriculum.  Each topic is carefully planned to ensure that National Curriculum requirements are met across the school. Our approach to the creative curriculum means that children are given the opportunity to explore a topic in a variety of ways. Lessons can range from creative art sessions to writing diary entries, it really is brought to life and making children inspired with a love of learning. Children gain a deeper understanding of the past and can use historical terms to talk about it and know how it has impacted our lives today. Children finish a topic with a understanding of the "bigger picture" and how it fits into their lives.

 

Achieving today and ready for tomorrow

Across the school pupils pupil develop historical enquiry skills. these skills progress from EYFS to Year six. Children are able to talk about their learning, specifically the skills they are using. Children understand why they are learning these historical skills and can relate them to real life.
