At Milton Park Primary School we believe that the teaching of History should fire children’s curiosity about the past, develop their understanding about the world in which we live and examine the way in which the past has influenced the present. We aim for our pupils to learn chronologically about significant people, events and developments from both recent and more distant eras.
We aim to inspire our children’s love of History by providing them with a rich and varied curriculum in which History is the ‘hook’ that the rest of the curriculum is based upon. Our children learn through a rich variety of activities and resources including having the opportunity to be “History Detectives”: posing questions, evaluating evidence, applying higher order thinking skills to solve problems. Our children are also given the opportunity to visit places of historical interest to provide them with an enriching curriculum and first hand experiences of History.
