History at Martin Frobisher's

History

 

Teaching and learning:

At Martin Frobisher Infant School, we use the National Curriculum and the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum as a basis for our planning within the subject. We aim to deliver a high-quality history education that will help pupils gain a coherent knowledge and understanding of Britain's past and that of the wider world. It will inspire children's curiosity to know more about the past. Our teaching will equip pupils to ask perceptive questions, think critically, weigh evidence, sift arguments, and develop perspective and judgement. History helps pupils to understand the complexity of people's lives, the process of change, the diversity of societies and relationships between different groups , as well as their own identity and the challenges of their time.

 

At Martin Frobisher Infant School, we use the National Curriculum and the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum as a basis for our planning within the subject, although we see this as only one element in the education of our children. Whenever possible, we teach through a themed, experienced based approach to enable children to embed learning and make connections, leading to a greater depth of understanding within the subject. Our teaching and learning opportunities allow all children to consolidate, build upon and apply basic skills.

Our curriculum aims run through everything we do, as we strive to provide the very best learning experiences for our children.

 

Implementation 

We use our Key Objective Progression and Development by Year group to support skill and knowledge progression from Nursery through to Year Two. These have been divided into the following aspects:-

Historical enquiry

Chronological awareness

Knowledge of the past

If you have any questions about the teaching of history at Martin Frobisher Infant School, please speak to your child's teacher or Mrs Parkinson, history leader.
