St Paul’s First School - History Vision Statement

At St Paul’s First School, we feel it is integral that all children have a good understanding of the world both past and present. We believe that high quality History lessons will encourage children to be excited and interested in events of the past. At St Paul’s we aim to give our children a History curriculum which enables them to become confident, creative and independent learners. Furthermore, we believe that within History lessons, we are encouraging children to acquire a range of knowledge and skills which they can adapt and apply to other curriculum areas and real life situations.

We also seek to broaden children’s understanding through educational visits, visitors, exploration and discovery. Within school, we aim to investigate sources such as pictures, factual information and artefacts to ask and answer questions about the past and how these impact on today’s society. Throughout the different Key Stages we aim for our curriculum to be progressive and develop a sense of chronology during the many topics studied whilst the children are with us.
