History at Holy Family Primary School
At The Holy Family Primary School we employ a topic and enquiry based approach to teaching and learning in History . This is being taught using the Rising Stars History scheme of work. We believe that teaching History in a creative and concrete way is fundamental to the development of Historical understanding.
Curriculum aims for History
At The Holy Family Catholic Primary School we follow the National Curriculum Programmes of study for History, and it is our aim that in History our pupils:-
History is taught in Nursery and Reception as an integral part of the topic work through child-initiated and adult led activities. The children are given the opportunity to find out about past and present events in their own lives, and those of their families and other people they know. In the Foundation stage history makes a significant contribution to developing a child’s understanding of the world through activities such as looking at pictures of famous people in history or discovering the meaning of new and old in relation to their own lives.
