The aim of St Patricks School history curriculum, is to develop children’s understanding of British, local and world history using a question-based approach, which allows children to think critically and ask their own perceptive questions about the past. To help pupils to develop a secure understanding of chronology, children are given the opportunity to use different sources, including non- fiction and fictional accounts of historical events and artefacts. Children will also be given regular opportunities to understand how events in the past have influenced our lives today. They have the opportunities to question similarities and differences between events and periods in history. This in turn enables them to develop their skills of enquiry, analysis, interpretation and problem solving. They have an enriched history curriculum through trips and real-life experiences.
