History

INTENT

At Biscovey Academy, we want children to enjoy and love learning about history by igniting their curiosity about the past through a cross-curricular approach and hands on experience wherever possible.

We believe that high-quality history lessons inspire children to want to know more about the past and to think and act as historians.

In fulfilling the requirements of the National Curriculum for History and utilising the Cornerstones scheme, we will provide a broad and balanced curriculum for our children.

Alongside historical knowledge, there will be a high focus on the development of specific historical skills, concepts and attitudes. Children will have opportunities to investigate and interpret the past, understand chronology, develop a sense of historical curiosity about their local area, build an overview of Britain’s past as well as that of the wider world, be able to communicate historically and develop and use their skills in enquiry, analysis, evaluation and argument.
