Woolston Infant School History Statement of Intent
We provide a History curriculum that immerses pupils in learning that is memorable, engaging and meaningful. The History curriculum enables pupils to acquire and develop the knowledge, skills and vocabulary they need to be successful Historians. Our History curriculum will enable the children to develop, apply and embed their skills through linked topic learning, building on what they already know and can do.
History will follow the National Curriculum programme of study. An integrated topic approach will be used to ensure full coverage of curriculum objectives and make the learning relevant to the children. A range of activities will be used such as cross curricular activities which will be blocked or fully integrated into a topic. Hands on experiences, visits and visitors will be used as stimulus for topics. Finally children will be given opportunities to explore the local environment and will be encouraged to share their thought and opinions.
