HISTORY

Kilham School History Curriculum Statement

 

At Kilham CE (VC) Primary School we believe that the study of history enables children to make sense of their world and enriches their understanding of it. This policy sets out the framework in which the history curriculum will be taught.

 

Intent

Through this curriculum, children will understand the similarities and differences between societies and cultures, and the impact of changes on people and place.

The teaching of history at Kilham School aims to:

·       enable children to know about significant events in British history from the earliest times to the present day; appreciating how things have changed over time and developing an understanding of chronology

·       have some knowledge and understanding of historical developments in the wider world (both European and Non- European civilisations) and to know where they fit alongside the chronology of Britain

·       help children to understand how local and national society has changed over time, in order to understand their place within it and to develop a sense of their cultural heritage

·       develop the skills of historical enquiry; encouraging opportunities to examine different types of evidence and considering how the past can be interpreted in different ways – depending on which side of an issue you are on

·       encourage visits and visitors which further children’s interest in and understanding of the topic

Kilham is a village steeped in History. As such, we also aim to ensure our children are given the time and opportunity to investigate our village and the surrounding area. Well organised local history units are built into our curriculum so that we can capitalise on our children’s natural curiosity about where we live and learn what is special about our village.

 

At Kilham CE (VC) Primary School we believe that our children are entitled to a broad and balanced curriculum. Teaching History enables us to celebrate the way in which the past has helped shape our world today and inspires children to discover more.

In line with the national curriculum 2014, the curriculum at Kilham CE (VC) Primary School aims to ensure that all pupils:

 

·        Gain a coherent knowledge and understanding of Britain’s past and that of the wider world; helping to stimulate pupils’ curiosity to know more about the past.

·        Are encouraged to ask perceptive questions, think critically, weigh evidence, sift arguments, and develop perspective and judgement.

·        Begin to understand the complexity of people’s lives, the process of change, the diversity of societies and relationships between different groups, as well as their own identity and the challenges of the world today.

 

Implementation

The Kilham Curriculum has been designed around the Cornerstones Curriculum 22. This is a capsule curriculum, which provides termly Knowledge Rich projects based around a history, or geography theme. Historical periods studied follow guidance set out in the national curriculum. Our history scheme provides complete coverage of all national curriculum History programmes of study.

History projects are well sequenced to develop children’s historical knowledge. Key aspects and concepts such as chronology, cause and effect, similarity and difference, significance and hierarchy are revisited throughout all the units of work and developed over time. Projects also provide opportunities for developing skills based around the use of historical evidence and historical enquiry.

Cross- curricular links are made between History and English. Where possible, other links are made with other projects such as Art and Design. For example, the Dynamic Dynasties project, about China’s Shang Dynasty, will be taught alongside the Art project Taotie, which will further develop children’s understanding of ancient Chinese arts and culture.

We believe it is important to  use the local area to enhance our History curriculum and are developing yearly local history projects, which will encourage children to find out more about the place and people of Kilham and the surrounding areas.

Please see the progression of skills document linked below.

 

Impact

Through our History curriculum our children are challenged to become engaged, reflective, and inquisitive historians.

Outcomes for each child are recorded at the end of a unit of work.

Wolds Rangers Visit

 

Children in Years 5 and 6 have been learning about the Wold Rangers as part of a local History topic.

In school we learned that prior to the Industrial Revolution about a third of people (33%) worked on farms, but that by 1890 it was just 6%. This meant that many people became workless and homeless and were forced to travel around looking for work.
