History

 

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

Geography

 

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
