At Rocks Park we hope that through the teaching of History we help children to develop key historical concepts such as change and continuity, cause and consequence, similarities and differences. These skills are developed while learning about the history of Britain and how people’s lives have shaped the nation. About how Britain has been influenced by the wider world and history in the wider world such as ancient civilisations and the expansion and dissolution of empires. As children progress as historians, they have opportunities to think critically about historical enquiry, weigh evidence, sift through arguments and develop perspective and judgment.
To find out more about how History is taught in each year group please visit our class pages and look at the medium term planning.
