History

History at St John's Primary School

 

History is all around us. The study of history ignites children’s curiosity about the past in Britain and the wider world.  Through finding out about how and why the world, our country, culture and local community have developed over time, children understand how the past influences the present.  History enables children to develop a context for their growing sense of identity and a chronological framework for their knowledge of significant events and people. What they learn through history can influence their decisions about personal choices, attitudes and values.  At St John’s, our intent, when teaching history, is to stimulate the children’s curiosity in order for all children to know more, remember more and understand more.     

    

The aims of history in our school are: 

  • Increase and develop their historical skills, concepts, knowledge and attitudes.
  • Increase their understanding of the present in the context of the past.
  • Develop and use their skills in enquiry, analysis, evaluation and argument.
  • Develop their interest in the past, arousing their curiosity and motivation to learn.
  • Develop a sense of identity through learning about the past.
  • Raise their personal goals and aspirations by introducing them to different people, beliefs and occupations.
