Through the study of History, the pupils will be introduced to understanding and interpreting the past and will develop a sense of identity through learning about changes in time and place.

The pupils will have opportunities to learn from a range of historical sources including artefacts, pictures, photographs, music, adults talking about their past, written sources and buildings. As they progress, the pupils will learn to develop the ability to acquire evidence from a variety of sources and to judge their reliability and value.
