History Intent Statement
At Carlton, pupils are given the opportunity to develop an understanding of the past and its implications upon the world today through our stimulating curriculum. Our aim is to ensure all children have the opportunity to be historians and to inspire pupils’ curiosity about the past. We encourage all children to ask perceptive questions, think critically, weigh evidence, sift arguments, and develop perspective and judgement.
This will allow children in their history lessons, to learn about people’s lives and lifestyles across the ages. Across the curriculum, we begin with the skills and knowledge that needs to be taught whilst also carefully planning enriched opportunities for children. We give children the chance to develop a sense of curiosity as well as chronology and provide opportunities to develop children’s knowledge and skills of the past through stories and the exploration of various informative sources. Children will have the opportunity to research, role play and discuss various themes throughout their primary years at Carlton.
Children will have the opportunity to study local history as well as important points in the history of our country. We follow a chronological approach to ensure children understand how one period of history feeds into another. From the Stone Age to the Mayan civilisation, children will learn about other cultures throughout the ages. They will be able to draw on comparisons and make connections between different time periods and their own lives through their understanding of world history such as the ancient civilisation of Greece. Through the teaching of History, we feel it is important that as a school, we ensure children have real life experiences to learn about history in an active and creative way.
