Statement of Intent for History
To inspire children’s curiosity to learn about the past and to learn from the past.
Implementation of History Curriculum
History at The Trinity is taught through timetabled specific lessons on a half-termly basis, alternating with Geography. The Rising Stars scheme of work is used for the delivery of History lessons. Each year group starts the topic with a question to investigate, and then the topic culminates in a big finish. Details of each topic can be found in the above section. National Curriculum expectations along with key skills, are used to assess children’s progress in this subject.
Impact of History Curriculum
Through our History lessons, children will be taught key vocabulary linked to each topic. They will also acquire a range of skills, including:
- Chronological understanding
- Knowledge and understanding of past events, people and changes in the past
- Historical interpretation
- Historical enquiry
- Organisation and communication
During these unprecedented times, we will endeavour to deliver our History curriculum through different channels. See Saw is the main platform that is used. This enables teachers to record lessons and assign activities for children to work on at home with their families. Children can then upload any work they have completed for feedback from their teachers or teaching assistants.
The topics for each year group will be the same as if the children were in school. However, adaptations are made, with video or additional links for research given. Twitter is also used to provide links for relevant topics. To celebrate good work. For families who are unable to work online, paper copies of History activities are included in the fortnightly work packs that are delivered by school staff.
