The outcome of a rich, rigorous and connected experience of learning in history will be a knowledge rich historian who can:

  • Ask pertinent historical questions.
  • Assess and critically evaluate potential answers to those questions.
  • Make reasoned judgements on the evidence.
  • Consider why people in the past may have behaved the way they did and what the consequences of their actions were.
  • Appreciate that different historical perspectives and interpretations exist and respect alternative perspectives.
  • Categorise different historical events and historical periods into a chronological time frame.

Our children will have a historical lens that will enable them to appreciate how the past has shaped the present. They will understand that there is no one view about the past, and that historians’ accounts of the past may differ.
