History at Kirkdale St. Lawrence
Please click on the links below to read the statutory guidance for History and our school's long term plan to cover the objectives. If you require a paper copy of these documents, please ask at the school office.
In our school, our vision is to give children a History curriculum which will inspire their curiosity to know more about the past. Children will be encouraged to ask perceptive questions, think critically, weigh evidence sift arguments to develop perspective and judgement. We aim to achieve this through an enquiry based approach using a range of engaging and active learning techniques.
To enrich our study of history, we regularly arrange school trips to places of interest connected to the topic being studied and also invite experts into school to share their knowledge.
