History

At St. Peter’s School it is our aim to instil a love for History in all our children. Exploring historical figures, periods and key events, children develop processes of enquiry: chronology, significance, change and continuity, cause, consequence and interpretation.

The progression and sequence of the curriculum is planned carefully starting in EYFS with History in children’s own living memory. This progression ensures a good understanding of key concepts such as democracy, monarchy, trade, settlement and invasion. These concepts are revisited regularly throughout both Key Stages. This enables our children to have a deep understanding of key historical concepts and the ability to make links between different periods of history.
