History has always been held in high regard at Holy Trinity Primary School. We pride ourselves on our creative learning environment and classroom displays. The history curriculum at Holy Trinity makes full use of resources within the immediate and wider local area enabling children to develop a deep understanding of the history of their locality.
Topics are informed by the national curriculum and are sensitive to children’s interests, as well as the context of the local area. The history curriculum at Holy Trinity is carefully planned and structured to ensure that current learning is linked to previous learning and that the school’s approaches are informed by current pedagogy.
In line with the national curriculum 2014, the curriculum at Holy Trinity aims to ensure that all pupils:
- Gain a coherent knowledge and understanding of Britain’s past and that of the wider world which helps to stimulate pupils’ curiosity to know more about the past;
- Are encouraged to ask perceptive questions, think critically, weigh evidence, sift arguments, and develop perspective and judgement;
- Begin to understand the complexity of people’s lives, the process of change, the diversity of societies and relationships between different groups, as well as their own identity and the challenges of their time.

HISTORY INTENT, IMPLEMENTATION AND IMPACT STATEMENT
All children use the same timeline as they explore the historical periods they study. These are stuck in the front of their history books for easy access in every lesson. Timelines are created in a more personal way in FS and KS1 to enable a more meaningful experience for our younger children.
