By the end of KS2, our children will have developed the historical knowledge and understanding of how the world has been shaped by past events. Our pupils will have analytical skills and a sense of curiosity, enabling them to be able to ask perceptive questions. They will be able to think critically and weigh up evidence with perspective and judgement. Children’s knowledge and skills will develop progressively as they move through the school. T
