History Curriculum

Intent
• For children to have access to a range of historical resources, such as artefacts and secondary resources.
• To have a whole school approach to teaching history, enabling us to build on historical skills.
• For children to experience enquiry-based learning, allowing them to investigate, consider and reflect.
• For children to celebrate and see the importance of history in their lives.

Implementation
• To monitor quality first teaching through work scrutiny, planning, acquisition of skills and pupil voice.
• To have enriched opportunities in and beyond the curriculum through expertise, afterschool clubs and class visits.
• To gather pupil and staff opinions on history at Junction Farm.
• To develop a ‘Progression of Skills’ document for all year groups (including EYFS) to ensure knowledge and skills are progressing.
• To work alongside the Geography subject lead to ensure an enquiry-based approach is taking place throughout all topics.

Impact
• There should be evidence of the ‘Progression of Skills’ in books.
• Children should be able to enthusiastically be a part of and discuss their learning journey, using enriched vocabulary and discussion of skills.
• There should be high attainment and progress for all children, supported through relevant intervention.
• There should be quality evidence of work across school on display and social media, in order to share with parents and other stakeholders.
