History fires pupils’ curiosity, developing their love of learning through asking questions about the past and the wider world. It enables our children to develop a chronological framework for their knowledge of significant events and people, allowing them to develop their knowledge, skills and understanding. This guides children to make sense of their physical world and their community.
Through our Christ Church Curriculum Safari, children are able to develop their historical knowledge, understand the process of change and make sense of the present. They are able to construct and develop arguments supporting them to become analytical citizens. Both knowledge and skills are taught in a cross curricular way, ensuring the curriculum deepens knowledge, is progressive and allows links to other areas of learning.
Our History curriculum has been created with cultural capital at the forefront of our minds, so that our children are exposed to historical events which link to the many different cultures within our school, as well as those events explored within the National Curriculum.
Black History Month
National Dress Day
October marks the start of Black History Month and we are very proud to say that cultural capital is now embedded throughout our new curriculum, therefore this will be celebrated throughout the year in every classroom. However, as we are truly blessed to be part of such a diverse community, we invited all children in school to come in wearing a national dress from a country of their choice. We had a lovely day celebrating all the different cultures within our school!
