At Brightwalton School, we want children to be curious about the past and intend that every child should receive a high-quality History education. We aim for them to gain a clear and chronological understanding of historical events, not only of Britain’s past, but also that of the wider world. Through exploring local, British and world history, the children will develop and use key historical skills, so that they are able to ask questions, think critically and analyse sources to develop perspective and judgement. Through lessons, children will continue to develop and use general skills such as resilience, reflection, risk-taking, collaboration and research, in order to further their understanding of the process of change, the diversity of people, societies and relationships, as well as their own identity and the challenges of their time. We use practical enhancements such as trips to museums and workshops to help the children gain an insight as to the challenges faced in each era, so furthering a depth of understanding.
