At Brettenham we aim for all children to develop a coherent and chronological knowledge of Britain’s past and that of the wider world. The children will be curious about the past and be able to ask questions. They will use information sources to think critically and to frame historically-valid questions to create their own structured accounts including written narratives. When leaving primary school children will know how people’s lives have shaped this nation and how Britain has shaped and influenced the wider world.
The children will know facts about the lives of significant individuals from the past and how they have contributed to national and international achievements. They will deepen their understanding of significant historical events, people and places from around the world. Key nuggets will be taught to ensure children can understand, make links and critically evaluate history. The children will understand how conflict across the ages has impacted on people in the past and remains significant today.
