It is our aim at St Berteline’s C of E Primary School to recreate the past by teaching in an exciting and stimulating way. History has shaped the customs and beliefs of the society to which we belong and our children’s understanding of the world in which they live is much dependent on their knowledge of the past.  “History is vital to a rich and broad primary education. It helps pupils to make sense of the present as well as the past, and to appreciate the complexity and diversity of human societies and development.” – Tim Jenner HMI, Ofsted’s subject lead for history (April 2021). By teaching the history curriculum in a creative way and encouraging children to think critically, ask perceptive questions, weigh evidence and sift arguments, we hope to support their understanding of how the world was in the past, how it is today and how decisions made today can impact on our future. The curriculum is designed to develop knowledge and skills that are progressive, as well as transferable. Children will be exposed to the teaching of history from day one of being in primary education and will develop a chronological awareness of all the events taught during their time at St Berteline’s C of E Primary School.  Progression is evident within the framework of enquiry in terms of depth and breadth of study, skill development, accuracy and precision.
