Understanding Our Past Helps Shape Our Future

Chronology,  Concepts,  Knowledge, Locality


At Holy Family we want our children to understand their place in history and how history can shape the future.  We have adapted our curriculum to be skills based, teaching our pupils enquiry and questioning skills, enabling them to make comparisons and understand chronology, alongside learning facts about a wide variety of time periods.  Due to being a mixed form entry school, our curriculum allows children to overlearn these skills through a variety of different topics, using a wide range of resources and experiences.  We also work alongside our children to plan a curriculum that interests them.  Where possible we make links to local history as well as having whole topics on our local area and how it has changed.  Through our history teaching we promote a respect and understanding of different cultures and practises and also look at how equality and laws have changed.  At the end of KS2, we aim that all children can question, compare, infer, investigate and show a real curiosity for the subject.
