At Somerville Primary School we are dedicated to providing all children with a range of opportunities to engage and learn about the people and events that have shaped the world we live in today. Our curriculum is designed and put together by our teachers, to allow pupils to learn and develop both educationally and personally.
Children will learn the skills to work as historians.
- The aim of history teaching at Somerville Primary School is to stimulate the children’s interest, curiosity and understanding about the past.
- Through the curriculum pupils will gain knowledge and understanding of the values of our society, how our local area has developed, about key aspects Britain’s past and that of the wider world.
- We teach children a sense of chronology and through this develop a sense of identity and an awareness of the challenges of their time.
- Teaching should equip children to ask questions, think critically, weigh evidence and develop perspective and judgement. History teaching should help pupils to understand the complexity of pupil’s lives, the process of change, the diversity of societies and the relationship between different groups.
