In Foundation stage we start investigating our ‘Personal History’ including our families. In key stage 1 we learn about
Changes within living memory;
Events beyond living memory that are significant nationally or globally
The lives of significant individuals in the past who have contributed to national and international achievements,
Significant historical events, people and places in their own locality
In Key Stage 2, each year group gets a wide scope of history. They study a period of British history before 1066, an ancient civilisation from around the world, and either an aspect of British history post-1066 or the local area. The British units are delivered in chronological order, from the Stone Age right up to the settlement by the Vikings, Normans and Scots, to build-up the children's understanding of the story of Britain and how it developed over time.
