                             Vision Statement

Our vision is that the teaching of history gives pupils an understanding of the past through learning about human achievements and experiences. We will investigate sources such as pictures, stories, writing and artefacts to ask and answer questions about the past and how these impact the world we live in today. We will examine the children's own personal history, and develop their sense of chronology throughout the study of topics through Key Stages 1 and 2. We aim to give our children a history curriculum which enables them to become confident, creative and independent learners. We seek to broaden children's real-life experiences both inside and outside of school through educational visits, visitors, experimentation, exploration and discovery. We believe that within history lessons, our children acquire a range of knowledge and skills, which they can then apply to other subjects and in a variety of situations.
