Our intent is to have a history curriculum structured so that learning is embedded through metacognitive strategies. We aim for children to build upon secure knowledge and skills with a big focus on vocabulary. By the end of their KS2 journey, children should have a portfolio of their key knowledge.
Through engaging and challenging lessons, children should begin to understand the complexity of people's lives, the process of change, the diversity of societies as well as their own identity and the challenges of their time.
West Bank is rich with history and whilst topics are informed by the National Curriculum, we aim to provide children with an understanding of the history of their locality. We aim to link lessons in other ways too with a running thread throughout every topic of how history has shaped our 'today'.
