At Brodetsky Primary school, a history education will help children gain a coherent knowledge and understanding of Britain’s past and that of the wider world. Each period covered is linked to every other area via ‘threads’ – areas of study such as governance, warfare, buildings, clothing – which establish clear narratives across the periods, binding learning throughout a child’s journey through the school. Our History program should inspire children’s curiosity to know more about the past, equipping them to ask perceptive questions, think critically, weigh evidence, sift arguments, and develop perspective and judgement. History helps children 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.
