History

History at Starbank makes full use of resources within the immediate and wider local area enabling pupils to develop a deep understanding of the richness of the history of their locality. Topics are informed by the national curriculum and aim to ensure that all pupils gain a coherent knowledge and understanding of significant events and people from British and world history.

Topics are planned to stimulate pupils’ curiosity to know more about the past, ask perceptive questions, examine historical sources and weigh evidence to draw their own conclusions. The three threads: invasion and Resistance, Civilisation and Identity, Challenge and Change are used to bring the progression of knowledge together across the year groups.
