Making comparisons while learning about, and from, changes over time.
Pupils gain a coherent knowledge and understanding of the history of Britain and that of the wider world, which inspires curiosity, perceptive questioning and critical thinking.
Children gain knowledge of a range of historical time periods and a deeper understanding of the values of people around the world and in their own locality.
History at our schools aims to provide pupils with a thorough understanding of the past of both Britain and the wider world. We aim to ensure that children are able to think critically when examining evidence and can develop their own opinions, which they can then support with their historical knowledge. They should have a firm grasp of the research processes and are able to use the correct historical terminology.
Progression of skillsAbove is a document that maps the knowledge and the skills that the children will learn across Key Stage 1 and Key stage 2. You will notice that there is a balance of learning about subject knowledge and practical skills.
Assessment is viewed as building a picture over time of a child's learning progress across the curriculum and is viewed as an integral part of teaching and learning.
Assessment for learning (AFL) and Visible Learning underpin all learning. A variety of feedback is used to inform the pupils about their learning so that they become more involved in their own learning and from this gain confidence in what they are expected to learn and how to progress it further.
Core success criteria and learning intentions are used to track pupils understanding of their learning.
Pupil Retrieval Practices include:
KWL grids, quizzes, concept/ mind maps, questioning, success criteria, learning intentions and pupil targets.
Whole School Tracking and Progress
We use iTRACK which is the online pupil tracking software that uses powerful data analysis to track pupil progress and attainment in real time.
