At Drayton, our pupils gather a coherent knowledge of Britain’s past and that of the wider world in a chronological narrative. This sound and well sequenced knowledge of history equips future adults to make a positive contribution to modern Britain, and beyond.
For history, our intent is that:
· Children develop the awareness of ‘belonging’ by providing a chronological backdrop – built upon throughout year groups and focussing on a number of key concepts, including population, empire, trade and creativity.
· We provide a historical background to growing up as members of our various communities
· We stimulate children’s curiosity, fascination and love of learning about the past
· Pupils explore the lives of significant individuals from the past, and how they were involved in significant events that influenced change
· The use of higher order vocabulary is commonplace
At Drayton, we intend that:
. Children develop sound knowledge of significant local places as well as those elsewhere.
· Pupils explore and discuss how human involvement has affected world-wide issues such as deforestation and climate change – and the consequences of these
. Children gather knowledge which helps them show understanding, sensitivity and respect towards societies different from our own
· Ensure that the use of higher order vocabulary is commonplace
