At Windy Nook, we want our pupils to understand that it is history that binds us together as a distinctive community from a widely globalised culture. The history curriculum will provide children with a coherent knowledge and understanding of Britain’s past and that of the wider world.
Each term, the children shall carryout an in-depth study of a significant time period in history. During these sequences of lessons, our aim is for the children to be curious and inquisitive about the past through asking perceptive questions and thinking critically. We shall develop their ability to scrutinise evidence and decide which version of events are credible. We hope they will be inspired by the amazing citizens, cultures and societies who have helped shape and advance our nation and the wider world; and to also learn from the mistakes and injustices that have occurred throughout time. By the end of the children’s historical journey, we believe that they shall have an understanding of their own identify and a sense of belonging which only history can provide.
