At St Luke’s, our teaching of History will help pupils gain a coherent knowledge and understanding of Britain’s past and that of the wider world to build respect, appreciation and pride of their country and their connection with the wider world. We aim for it to inspire pupils’ curiosity about the past to develop their understanding of key people and events and what has influenced the world to be the way it is today. Children will ask questions, think critically, weigh evidence and develop perspective. Through the teaching of History we endeavour to teach pupils to understand the complexity of people’s lives, including those of the present, the process of change, the diversity of societies and beliefs, whilst celebrating these differences. Our curriculum aims to develop the children’s awareness of the past and how historians study and will equip our children with the disciplinary knowledge needed to become a historian.
