At Marshland Primary Academy, the intent of our History curriculum is to deliver a curriculum which is accessible to all and that will maximise the outcomes for every child so that they know more, remember more and understand more. Topics are informed by the National Curriculum and are sensitive to children’s interests, as well as the context of the local area. The history curriculum is carefully planned and structured to ensure that current learning is linked to previous learning. Children will be taught as historians to understand how Britain has influenced and has been influenced by the wider world. They will be taught to make links and connections within and across periods of history and to understand the concepts of causation, change and significance. Children will be taught to work as ‘historians’ to interpret a range of sources to learn about the past and to understand that there are differing interpretations of the past, enabling them to appreciate historical bias.
