History

Welcome to the History Page

 

Intent:

We aim to make History an enjoyable learning experience. At Moor Hey we teach British History, European and World History.

The following concepts underpin our study of History:

  • Chronological understanding – using dates that describe historical periods and analysing the characteristic features of periods and societies.
  • Cultural, ethnic and religious diversity – understanding the experiences and ideas in past societies.
  • Change and continuity – within and across periods of history.
  • Cause and consequence – analysing and explaining historical events.
  • Significance – considering the significance of historical events in the past and present day.
  • Interpretation – understanding how people form interpretations of historical events.

Implementation:

The following skills and processes are needed to enable our pupils to learn and make progress in History:

  • Historical inquiry – identify and investigate historical issues and reflect critically on historical questions or issues; devising their own questions to structure an investigation.
  • Using evidence – identify, select and use a range of historical sources, and evaluate the reliability and value of those sources, to reach reasoned conclusions.
  • Communicating about the past – present historical accounts using chronological conventions and historical vocabulary. Communicate their knowledge and understanding of historical events – developing writing, speaking and listening skills as they recall, select, classify and organise historical information.
  • In EYFS, Key Stages 1 and 2, History is taught alongside Geography in a Topic based format. Pupils will complete a History topic in one half term and then Geography a topic the next half term.

    In Key Stage 3 pupils have one 55 minute History lesson each week.

     In Year 9 the pupils are studying for the History ASDAN Short Course Online.

 

Impact:

For pupils to have a varied and stimulating curriculum, and to develop an understanding of the world around them based on previous events.
