HISTORY INTENT STATEMENT
We believe that History is a tool for learning and communication. History is essentially about people and their development over the period of time. It is essential to our understanding of the development of the modern world. Skills developed through the study of History are applicable to everyday life.
In History we aim to:
help pupils to develop historical knowledge and understanding.
introduce pupils to historical enquiry through studying historical evidence asking questions and problem solving.
help pupils develop a sense of chronology.
help pupils interpret History using a variety of sources.
give an understanding that society in which pupils live has been shaped by past developments.
develop an appreciation of the need for both continuity and change,
develop the ability to communicate historical knowledge in oral, written and visual forms using appropriate vocabulary and techniques.
