Learning about history

At Our Lady’s, we inspire pupils’ curiosity to want to know more about the past. We teach children to think critically, to look at sources and evidence and to develop a coherent knowledge and understanding of Britain’s and the wider world’s past. We want our children to have a love of the subject and to be able to apply and understand the skills and knowledge that they have learnt. Our History curriculum is taught through stimulating and exciting ways into the past including visits and visitors, drama and role play, inspiration days, first-hand enquiry experience using a range of sources, through questioning, probing and discovering. We use knowledge organisers to help us remember all of our new learning.
