The History curriculum at Aylward Primary School is carefully planned and structured to ensure it is inclusive of all pupils and that current learning is linked to previous learning. Our History curriculum is guided by the National curriculum and considers the background and interest of our children as well as the context of our local area.
The curriculum hopes to inspire curiosity in pupils and through our teaching of History they will have the opportunity to gain knowledge and understanding of Britain in the past and that of the wider the world.
History enables pupils to develop a context for their growing sense of identity and a chronological framework for their knowledge of significant events and people. What they learn through history can influence their decisions about personal choices, attitudes and values.
Children will develop the art of being inquisitive through questioning, thinking critically and trying to analyse and evaluate events, people and sources.
