Alderbrook Nursery & Primary School


The Intent of our History Curriculum

At Alderbrook Primary School, we provide a history curriculum that ignites curiosity and fascination about the past in Britain as well as the wider world.  Through finding out about how and why the world, our country, culture and our local community have developed over time, children begin to understand how the past influences the present. Our representative History curriculum enables children to develop a context for their growing sense of identity and a chronological framework for their knowledge of significant events and people. We have carefully written our curriculum to represent a diverse range of backgrounds which are linked to our demographic. Within our history curriculum across the school we have focused our lesson objectives and history units on 6 big ideas, civilisation, democracy, empire, cause and consequence, change and continuity and parliament which thread throughout the curriculum from Year 1 to Year 6.
