Sir Thomas Abney Primary School


Our History curriculum is designed to build upon skills and knowledge learned, ensuring our pupils gain a coherent and progressive understanding of Britain’s past and that of the wider world. We explore a vast range of historical events linked through their projects. Children are encouraged to develop their skills and approach to learning through investigative work and drawing their own conclusions based on a build-up of knowledge.

We aim to inspire curiosity, encourage the children to ask perceptive questions, compare and examine sources, debate and critique arguments, provoking their ability to develop their own sense of perspective and judgement. We aim to give the children an opportunity to begin to understand the complexity of people’s lives, the process of change, the diversity of societies and relationships between different groups, as well as their own identity and the challenges of their time.
