At Shiplake CofE Primary School we deliver a History curriculum which will inspire and immerse pupils in British History. Our intent is to provide pupils with the experiences to gain knowledge and skills to understand significant aspects of our history and its impact on Britain and the wider world. We seek to promote curiosity within our pupils, encouraging them to think critically, weigh up both primary and secondary evidence to form their own opinions, together deepening their understanding of the history of Britain. Children learn key facts and concepts alongside skills such as chronological understanding, how to analyse and evaluate historical evidence, how to empathise with people from different eras and how to compare and contrast life in different periods. Through classroom learning and local educational visits pupils develop a love for History allowing them to discover first-hand links and connection to their locality.
