The history curriculum makes full use resources within the immediate and wider local area enabling children to develop a deep understanding of the rich history of their locality. Topics are informed by the national curriculum and are sensitive to children’s interests, as well as the context of the local area. It aims to ensure that all pupils; gain a coherent knowledge and understanding of Britain’s past and that of the wider world which helps to stimulate pupils’ curiosity to know more about the past; are encouraged to ask perceptive questions, think critically, weigh evidence, sift arguments, and develop perspective and judgement; begin 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.
What our children think about History at Corpus Christi!
"I like History because I think it is good to learn about people who were here before us. History helps us build our knowledge and learn about the past. It makes me feel lucky to learn about what people use to have compared with what we have now". Zara & Karnell (Year 6)
