History Curriculum Statement

At Heene, the delivery of a creative History curriculum encourages children to understand their place in the world and how past events have influenced our lives today.  The curriculum aims to provide children with a chronologically secure knowledge and understanding of British and world history.  In addition, children will learn about significant historical events in their local area and compare these to the wider world.

History involves far more than the learning of facts. Children are encouraged to ask perceptive questions and to develop skills of enquiry, analysis, interpretation and problem-solving.  The past comes to life through the delivery of a broad and balanced curriculum which is creative, engaging and, where possible, cross-curricular.
