At St Vincent’s we have developed our History curriculum based on the requirements of the National Curriculum. We teach a wide range of topics through engaging lessons that bring the past to life using a variety of core resources. We use cross-curricular links with other subjects such as Geography, Art and Religious Education to ensure effective and well-rounded learning takes place. Exploring the changing world across the globe alongside examining different faiths and relating moments in history to our Christian faith are key elements of our teaching. We encourage children to become active and independent learners. At St Vincent’s our History topics are taught in blocks of learning that are carefully mapped out, ensuring that there is a clear progression of skills and concepts, consistently building upon prior knowledge where time periods and key figures can be compared. Children learn key vocabulary in lessons and through regular use of timelines children can make connections between different historical periods and develop their understanding of chronology. There are ample opportunities to undertake high-quality research and explore source material across a range of topics, ensuring that our learning of History can be used to inform our present and future, alongside developing social skills as we celebrate the world’s diverse heritage and promote diversity and inclusivity.
