Work hard, be kind

Carnarvon Primary School


The intent of our History Curriculum is to develop within our students:

  • A passion for history and an enthusiastic engagement in learning, which develops their sense of curiosity about the past and their understanding of how and why people interpret the past in different ways. 
  • A coherent chronological understanding of the history of Britain and its relationship to concurrent world history.
  •  An excellent knowledge and understanding of people, events, and contexts from a range of historical periods
  • The ability to think like a historian - to reflect, debate, discuss and evaluate the past, formulating and refining questions and lines of enquiry. 
  • The ability to consistently support, evaluate and challenge their own and others’ views using historical evidence from a range of primary and secondary sources. 
  • A desire to embrace opportunities to undertake and present high-quality research across a range of history topics.

The implementation of our History Curriculum:

The intended impact of our History Curriculum is that:

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.   This will not only enable them to meet the requirements of the National Curriculum but prepare them to become competent Historians in Secondary Education.
