At Willaston we aim to deliver a high quality, creative and ambitious curriculum that inspires pupil’s curiosity, enjoyment and love of history. We want to stimulate pupils curiosity to know more about the past. In line with the National Curriculum for History , our curriculum at Willaston is carefully planned and structured to provide a progressive development of historical knowledge, concept and skills, which builds on previous learning.
Through this curriculum, we aim to ensure that all pupils gain a coherent knowledge and understanding of Britain’s past and that of the wider world, enabling them to become global learners. Elements of our British history content is delivered in chronological order, other topics are planned in an order that enables pupils to build on prior knowledge to compare different significant people/ periods of time and different cultures. Pupils are encouraged to ask perceptive questions, think critically, weigh evidence, sift arguments, and develop perspective and judgement. We want them begin to understand the complexity of people’s lives, the process of change, the diversity of societies and relationships between different groups. In doing so, this will improve their understanding of how life and society has developed over time and help them to learn how to be a better citizen.
