At Marshland Primary Academy, we aim for all children to develop a sense of identity through not only learning about the past in the context of their community, but also the wider world. We want them to understand and appreciate how it has shaped their lives.
Our History curriculum is accessible to all and maximises the outcomes for every child so that they know more, remember more and understand more.
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.
