History

History curriculum intent
At St Adrian’s, we strive to make history a curriculum full of curiosity and enquiry. Our intent is to provide pupils with opportunities that develop their love and passion of history, whilst developing their historical skills and knowledge. We aim to use resources which enable children to develop a deep understanding of historical events that have taken place. Teaching will equip pupils to ask perceptive questions, think critically, weigh evidence, sift arguments, develop perspective and judgement and teach them that evidence may lead to different conclusions. They will be able to understand the complexity of people’s lives, the process of change (comparing then and now), the diversity of societies and relationships between different groups (and the impacts they have had) , as well as their own identity and the challenges of our time.
