Developing young historians
At Shakespeare, our curriculum is designed to help develop young historians: pupils who have a secure knowledge of significant global and historical events and are able to discuss the impact that these events have had on the world in which they live.
Our history curriculum is build upon principles and practices which support the retention of knowledge. Our children begin by learning about their own family history before developing a wider knowledge of significant local figures and events in the early years and KS1. Across KS2, children build upon this knowledge by exploring a range of themes. Every historical theme at Shakespeare, enables children to learn and understand key concepts which are taught in history lessons.
