Our vision for History:
We believe that learning about significant events and people in History should lay the foundations for an enquiring and questioning mind. The breadth of historical knowledge the pupils are given and the exposure to how life was in the past, aims to motivate the children to develop an enquiring mind and to ask questions such as how life today came about. We will teach children the skills to be a good historian; how to research and gather information, develop their skills of enquiry and analysis as well as starting to question information gathered and its reliability.
In History at Matchborough First School Academy we aim to:
Help each child develop an understanding of historical concepts, such as time, change, evidence and cause and consequence.
The lead Learner for History is Mrs L Wakefield
