Ofsted defines History as ‘vital to a rich and broad primary education. It helps pupils to make sense of the present as well as the past, and to appreciate the complexity and diversity of human societies and development.’
At Hunslet Moor Primary School, we aim for History to inspire pupils’ curiosity about the past. Through its teaching we endeavour for children to gain understanding of the complexity of people’s lives, diversity of societies and relationships between different groups as well as their own identity.
At Hunslet Moor Primary School, our History Curriculum is underpinned by celebrating the rich history of our school and the local area. We aim to give children opportunities to investigate and interpret the past, understand chronology, build an overview of Britain’s past and that of the wider world and to be able to communicate historically. Children are encouraged to ask perceptive questions, think critically, weigh evidence, sift arguments and develop perspective and judgement.
