History at Woodnook

The aim of our History Curriculum at Woodnook Primary School, is to inspire in our pupils a curiosity and fascination about Britain’s past and that of the history of the wider world. We want our pupils to enjoy and love learning about history through well-planned lessons and activities. To also develop an understanding of chronology through their studies from EYFS to Year 6. We aim to equip our students with the enquiry skills they need for life-long learning.

When teaching History, we are aiming to develop and equip the pupils with the knowledge and skills to think and act like historians. We strive to teach exciting, informative and varied lessons, engaging pupils all across the school and fostering a passion for history. Pupils will access a range of resources across all year groups to enable them to enhance their learning. These could include visits in the local area and wider afield, visitors, video/film, the use of technology, role play and drama, primary and secondary sources including artefacts.
