Our Aims and Objectives
To provide a rich, high-quality History curriculum which equips all pupils with the experience, knowledge and skills they need to gain a secure, coherent understanding of local, British and world history. As staff, we have worked together across the Key Stages to ensure our History curriculum has been carefully planned and sequenced to enable this to be delivered in chronological order, allowing pupils to develop, build upon and deepen their understanding of historical concepts. We aim to equip pupils with a secure knowledge and understanding about key people, events and time periods of the past.
Our Curriclum Planning
At Witton Church Walk Primary School, we deliver our History curriculum through our progression document. This document maps out the key knowledge, skills and vocabulary the children will be working towards achieving by the end of each key stage. Each National Curriculum objective is broken down into small, achievable steps in order to create a sequence of lessons, allowing for depth of learning to take place. Staff have collaborated on this document to ensure that learning is progressive and built upon prior learning as the children move through the key stages. This ensures our curriculum delivers clear progression of skills from Year 1 to Year 6. Our curriculum reflects our locality and is tailored towards the needs and experiences of our pupils. This ensures our carefully planned sequence of lessons promote curiosity, engagement and a love of learning.
