History Curriculum Intent at Whitstone
At Whitstone we value the importance of History and its place in the children’s learning. We wan to inspire and ignite the curiosity of the past and present and to understand the impact that historical events can have on our lives.
Through careful planning, we deliver high-quality history education which will help pupils gain a coherent knowledge and understanding of Britain’s past and that of the wider world.
We aim to inspire pupils’ curiosity to know more about the past and equip them to ask perceptive questions, think critically, weigh evidence, shift arguments, and develop perspective and judgement. We believe that History helps pupils 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.
