At Tudor Primary school, we see the importance of teaching history beginning in EYFS (Early Years Foundation Stage) through to UKS2 (Upper Key Stage Two). We believe it is essential for the children, as historians, to build on their own personal historical enquiry and that will be driven by the bespoke teaching of this subject.
The document below will draw together the approach we take, as a school, to ensure the development of our children’s historical knowledge through the ages whilst advancing on their historical enquiry. This is in conformity with the National curriculum and the school’s thematic teaching of History, which is planned through a thematic approach closely linked to the National Curriculum. High quality teaching is carried out within Tudor Primary school, providing superlative opportunities for pupils to access all areas of the History curriculum.
History enables children to understand the complexity of people’s lives, the changes that have occurred as well as their own identity and historical enquiry that grows within each individual child.
