History

Intent:

At Downs View we are committed to foster children’s curiosity about the past and how it impacts modern day life.

 

Implementation:

  • Through the delivery of a broad and balanced, creative curriculum that meets the needs of the children. Our curriculum is enquiry based and builds upon prior learning.
  • Through questioning and challenge to encourage children to develop a deeper understanding.
  • By equipping children with the skills and knowledge to investigate, explore and think critically about historical events, places and significant people.
  • Through wider experiences and provision during child initiated times.

 

Impact:

  • Children understand the importance of the past and are challenged to think deeper about what they learn and know.
  • Children can be masters of their learning and think critically about historical content.
  • Children will develop an understanding of their own, local and world history.
  • Children’s wellbeing is high whilst they investigate historical skills and knowledge.
