Our History curriculum will engage and inspire curiosity, while encouraging children to think critically and ask questions. Through our history curriculum we aim to teach children the importance of enquiry, research and analysis; and teach an understanding of the complexity of people’s lives and the process of change. We believe that high-quality History lessons inspire children to want to know more about the past and to think and act as historians.
We aim develop children with the following essential characteristics to help them become historians and during their time at Bude Primary Academy Infants our children will develop
• An excellent knowledge and understanding of people, events and contexts from a range of historical periods, including significant events in Britain’s past;
• The ability to think critically about history and communicate ideas confidently to a range of audiences;
• The ability to support, evaluate and challenge their own and others’ views using historical evidence from a range of sources;
• The ability to think, reflect, debate, discuss and evaluate the past by formulating and refining questions and lines of enquiry;
• A respect for historical evidence and the ability to make critical use of it to support their learning;
• A desire to embrace challenging activities, including opportunities to undertake high-quality research across a range of history topics;
• A developing sense of curiosity about the past and how and why people interpret the past in different ways.
The History curriculum in Key Stages One seeks to give pupils a solid foundation and broad overview in some of the most important periods, events and themes in local, national and world history
