National Curriculum Purpose of Study
How is history taught at Colville?
At Colville Primary School we teach history regularly throughout the year. Students have a topic each term which is either mainly history focussed with elements of geography, or the reverse. In addition, our collective worship regularly features a history theme where we explore important events, people, inventions and discoveries. Pupils are routinely asked to engage with history from the perspective of the people who experienced it. Delivered alongside a progressively chronological content map, students are able to make comparisons and judgements about people and beliefs in the past. This culminates in pupils at the end of Key Stage Two who can identify and explain how history has shaped the present.
