At St Teath C.P. School, History is such an important part of our curriculum because it is the subject that enables our children to understand history as a coherent narrative from the earliest times to the modern world, not just in Britain but around the world. It is important that children know their foundations and how events have shaped people’s lives and impacted on their own lives in the modern world. History is the subject that allows us compare and ,make connections between local, regional, national and international history; between cultural, economic, military, political, religious and social history; and between short- and long-term timescales. Knowing our past is knowing our foundations.
Marcus Garvey supports this by saying "people without the knowledge of their past history, origin and culture is like a tree without roots."
This year the school has adopted the 'Opening Worlds' Humanities Curriculum to deliver the History Curriculum in KS2. KS1 history progression is designed to link in to the Opening Worlds Curriculum themes and skills.
