At Longstone CE Primary School, we believe that our pupils should be immersed in a rich, broad and balanced curriculum that engenders an enquiring and critical outlook on the world.
We aim to ignite children’s curiosity about the past and the wider world and nurture them to think critically, analyse evidence and appreciate different perspectives.
Through the study of history, pupils are encouraged to ask questions and develop an understanding of chronology as they learn about significant people and events. This allows them to understand how the past influences the present.
History at Longstone enables children to develop a cultural understanding as they learn to value their own and other people’s cultures in a modern multicultural Britain. This lets children shine with their own sense of identity.
History at Longstone follows our four year topic cycle using the National Curriculum objectives.
Children will access a range of resources to support their learning. This includes the handling of artefacts, acquiring visitors into school, having access to secondary resources such as books and photographs, independently using resources from the internet and using non-fiction books for research.
