History Curriculum Intent Statement

At Holymead Primary school we aim to equip pupils with a coherent knowledge and understanding of Britain’s past and that of the wider world. We aim to stimulate pupils’ curiosity and interest and develop a chronological understanding of the past. Teaching should provide opportunities to ask questions, think critically, consider evidence, sift arguments, and develop perspective and judgement. History helps pupils to understand the process of change, the diversity of societies and relationships between different groups and the challenges of their time. By considering how people lived in the past they will learn to value their own culture in modern multi-cultural Britain, as well as that of others.
