History Curriculum Statement
The aim of history teaching here at Sutton Manor Primary School is to stimulate the children’s interest and understanding about events in the past and lives of the of people who lived through them. From the early years, we teach the children chronologically, and through this, they develop a sense of identity and a cultural understanding about their own local historical heritage, how this links to the wider world and its context with global historical events. Our history curriculum is diverse, inclusive and inspirational. The children study changing attitudes to different races and genders throughout time and are taught that great achievements and change can, and has, been made on the world stage by people from our local community. Our aim is to pique pupils’ curiosity to know more about the past. Our teaching aims to equip children with the knowledge and skills to ask perceptive questions, think critically, weigh evidence, sift arguments, and develop perspective and judgement. This will help our children 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.
