History allows Children to see the world clearly. Through their work in History, children develop a coherent knowledge and understanding of Britain’s Past and that of the wide world which helps to stimulate pupil’s curiosity to know more about the past. They are encouraged to question and critically weigh evidence and sources to develop a perspective on the world. At Monksdown we want to equip our pupils with the knowledge and skills to understand the complexities of people’s lives, change in the world and the societies around them. We believe that History is vital in providing children with the understanding of how the past impacts their future. In order for them to fully understand the world they live in, they need to know the events and actions that have led them to now. The core of History at Monksdown Primary is to promote children’s interests and curiosity into how the past informs the present and to develop a life-long appreciation for the rich tapestry of the history of the world around us.
