History at Church Eaton helps pupils gain a coherent knowledge and understanding of Britain’s past and that of the wider world. Pupils’ curiosity is inspired to know more about the past and are encouraged to ask perceptive questions and think critically. Our history curriculum supports pupils in understanding the complexity of people’s lives, the process of change, the diversity of societies and relationships between different groups, as well as their own identity and the challenges of their time.
History at Church Eaton is taught using the Cornerstones curriculum with each class having a topic (usually termly). Through their historical enquiries, pupils will become competent in analysing and thinking critically about different sources of information. Our lessons will also draw upon the importance of chronology to give all children an understanding of key eras within the world’s history. We make cross-curricular links where we can to ensure pupils are given as many different lenses to carry out their learning through.
