During their time at St Lawrence, children will gain a coherent knowledge and understanding of Britain’s past, their local history and that of the wider world. Within this, children will gain a deeper understanding of how people’s lives have shaped and changed Britain. To ensure that a knowledge of an era is deepened, year groups will focus on specific areas of history topics. During their studies, children will be encouraged to ask questions and make connections to previous learning.
Rich history trips, artefact boxes and specialist visitors will support this knowledge and ensure a deep understanding while continuing to encourage children’s curiosity. Through Year R to Year 6 pupils will link knowledge and identify concepts across topics. They will be able to thinking broadly – considering where history topics sit on a timeline. These valuable curriculum lessons will provide children with an in-depth understanding of the past through interesting and insightful studies.
