At Stoborough Primary School we aim to provide the children with the skills they need to develop as historians. We aim for children to gain a coherent knowledge and understanding of Britain and the wider world. Through the teaching of History, we aim to inspire pupils’ curiosity about the past. Children are encouraged to question, reflect, evaluate, think critically, develop perspective and judgement. These progressive skills not only develop the pupils as historians but gives the children the life skills they require for their future selves. Children will develop their cultural capital, they will understand the diversity of societies and relationships between groups as well as their own identity and the challenges of their time. This will prepare the children for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of life in the 21st century.
