At Westacre we aim to inspire our pupils' curiosity to know more about the past. We equip pupils to ask perceptive questions, think critically, weigh evidence and develop perspective and judgement. Through a well rounded curriculum pupils develop an understanding of the complexity of peoples lives, the diversity of societies as well as their own identity and challenges of their time.
Please find below the skills progression map for History at Westacre. This uses the National Curriculum for History to identify how the children should develop and build upon their skills in five key areas, as they progress from First School through Upper Key Stage 2 and into Key Stage 3.
So far during 2017/18 each year group has explored different aspects of History through dressing up, visiting places off-site and using toilet roll to see how long ago things really happened! See each Year Group page for more details and photos!
