History

 

At Saint Patrick's, we believe that, through the study of History, children make sense of their world and enrich their understanding of it. Through our curriculum, we aim to ensure that our children understand the similarities and differences between societies and cultures, and the impact of changes on people and place.

 

Our curriculum aims to ensure that pupils: 

 

  • Know and understand the history of the UK, and how it shaped the world, as a coherent, chronological narrative, from the earliest times to the present day.
  • Know and understand significant aspects of the history of the wider world, such as ancient civilisations; empires and past non-European societies and deploy a historically grounded understanding of abstract terms such as ‘empire’, ‘civilisation’, ‘parliament’ and ‘peasantry’.
  • Understand historical concepts, such as continuity and change, cause and consequence, similarity, difference and significance, and use these to analyse.
  • Understand the methods of historical enquiry such as using evidence to support arguments.
  • Gain a historical perspective by placing their growing knowledge into different contexts, understanding the connections between local, regional, national and international history.
