The Curriculum at St Luke’s is adapted to be a vocabulary rich, enquiry based curriculum; with a focus on improving pupils long and short term memory to improve accuracy and fluency of children’s grasp of knowledge and skills; in order for learning to be progressional and for all children to be confident fluent readers.

The History curriculum meets the needs of the National Curriculum* programmes of study as units of knowledge and skills. 

This is further deepened, enhanced and supported by additional experiences, opportunities, resources in the form of  The Global Citizen and Mental Wellbeing curriculum.

 

National Curriculum:

 

Key Stage 1:

Pupils should develop an awareness of the past, using common words and phrases
relating to the passing of time. They should know where the people and events they study fit within a chronological framework and identify similarities and differences between ways of life in different periods. They should use a wide vocabulary of everyday historical terms.
They should ask and answer questions, choosing and using parts of stories and other
sources to show that they know and understand key features of events. They should
understand some of the ways in which we find out about the past and identify different ways in which it is represented.

Key Stage 2:

Pupils should continue to develop a chronologically secure knowledge and understanding of British, local and world history, establishing clear narratives within and across the periods they study. They should note connections, contrasts and trends over time and develop the appropriate use of historical terms. They should regularly address and sometimes devise historically valid questions about change, cause, similarity and difference, and significance. They should construct informed responses that involve thoughtful selection and organisation of relevant historical information. They should understand how our knowledge of the past is constructed from a range of sources.
