Within our History curriculum, we aim to enrich children by providing them with memorable experiences both in the classroom and beyond. We intend to foster the children’s curiosity and enthusiasm for History so that when they reach the end of their time at Sutton CP they are confident historians. We want our pupils to know about and explain key events in modern history, especially the ones that have shaped modern society, understanding that the past often influences the present and future. History enables children to develop a context for their growing sense of identity and a chronological framework for their knowledge of significant events and people. Furthermore, our children will learn about aspects of local, British and Ancient history. This wider awareness leads to the children having some knowledge of historical development in the wider world. We believe that by allowing the children to understand the importance and enjoyment of History through different opportunities, they will become enthused learners.
