History 

Vision Statement 

 

At Foxdell, we teach history through our creative curriculum and as part of our Literacy  learning.  

 

Throughout key stage one, children develop an awareness of the past, using common  words and phrases relating to the passing of time. They develop a knowledge of where  the people and events they study fit within a chronological framework and identify  similarities and differences between ways of life in different periods. They learn how  to use a wide vocabulary of everyday historical terms. As well as this, they learn how  to ask and answer questions, choosing and using parts of stories and other sources to  show that they know and understand key features of events. They also develop  and understanding some of the ways in which we find out about the past and identify  different ways in which it is represented. 

 

Children are taught about changes within living memory. Where appropriate,  these are used to reveal aspects of change in national life. They also learn  about events beyond living memory that are significant nationally or globally. 

 

Children learn about the lives of significant individuals in the past who have  contributed to national and international achievements as well as how to compare  aspects of life in different periods. 

 

They also learn about significant historical events, people and places in their own  locality. 

 

We ensure that the learning is accessible to all children, by making history real through role  play, research and project work.
