From the beginning of school children will develop historical thought through investigating life beyond their living memory. Through the use of artefacts, visits, visitors and experiential activities children will develop their empathy and knowledge of history.
History teaching and learning will ensure pupils gain a coherent knowledge and understanding of Britain’s past and that of the wider world. We aim to inspire pupils’ curiosity to know more about the past and equip pupils to ask perceptive questions, think critically, weigh evidence, sift arguments and develop perspective and judgement.
Children will leave St Clements Primary with an understanding of how their lives are affected by the events of the past; a knowledge of the sequence of key events; an understanding of historical concepts; an ability to question sources and accounts and an enjoyment of history.
