History

At Cawston Grange Primary School, our history curriculum is designed to ignite children’s curiosity about the past.

We bring history to life by immersing children in realistic experiences linked to the different topic areas. Through educational visits, both in and out of school, and the use of artefacts, children gain a good understanding of significant events in World and British history as well as appreciating how things change and develop over time. Alongside the teaching of historical knowledge, there is a high focus on children learning historical terms and vocabulary, being confident with chronology, carrying out different types of historical enquiry and research,  opportunities to communicate and organise their learning in a variety of ways and revisiting and making links with their previous learning in history.
