As part of our broad, balanced and creative curriculum, we aim to grow historians and their knowledge across the school, from EYFS to Year 6. Our curriculum starts with their own personal history and then builds to include an understanding of Britain's past and the history of the wider world. At Farley Hill we do this through many topics such as; Ancient Greece, World War II, All About Me, Anglo-Saxons and Vikings, Victorians and Romans. We also learn about key historical figures in both class and school assemblies.
To enhance this learning we have many external visits, visitors to the school and special History Days which deepens their understanding of significant events and periods of history.
Our history curriculum supports children to ask perceptive questions, think critically, weigh evidence, sift arguments, and develop perspective and judgement. History helps pupils 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.
