Historical themes often lie at the heart of our curriculum topics, with pupils enjoying learning about Ancient Greece, Ancient Egypt, World War Two and so much more.  There are timelines in every classroom and there is a focus on developing a sense of chronology. The book 'Timeline' by Peter Goes is often used as a starting point when new topics are introduced.


We have been tweaking the History curriculum this year and are in the process of drafting the scheme of work, embedding the progression of skills and knowledge and compiling key vocabulary lists. This process will be complete by the end of the school year and published on our website in September 2022.
