History at Norwood

The teaching and learning of History is essential to the development of a child’s understanding of the world around them. By giving children the opportunity to explore and research the actions of people and events in the past, they are able to develop their own ideas, beliefs and values.

The teaching of History enriches children’s natural enquiry skills. History allows children to foster a keen appreciation of the world that has gone before them and not only does it broaden children’s horizons about the past, it also enhances and supports their learning in other curriculum areas.

Our Aims
Throughout our History Curriculum at Norwood, all pupils will:

  • Enjoy learning about the past and will develop an understanding of how the past has influenced the present.
  • Develop a sense of chronology so they can organise their understanding of the past.
  • Have opportunities for investigation and learning using a wide range of sources and information.
  • Learn how to distinguish between historical facts and interpretation.
  • Have opportunities to develop their skills of enquiry, analysis and investigation.
  • Learn about key events in the history of their own country and the world.
  • Develop their spiritual, moral, social and cultural development through the study of past societies.

Programme of Study for History
History is a foundation subject of the Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 National Curriculum, whereby the programme of study is divided into chronological understanding; knowledge and understanding of events, people and changes in the past; historical interpretation; historical enquiry and organisation and communication.

If you have any queries, or concerns, about the teaching and learning of History at Norwood, please do not hesitate to contact the school.
