St Charles' CVA we aim to ensure pupils develop a secure knowledge of history locally and the wider world. To apply and demonstrate a progression of skills.
The national curriculum for history aims to ensure all pupils:
know and understand the history of these islands as a coherent, chronological narrative, from the earliest times to the present day: how people's lives have shaped this nation and how Britain has been influenced by the wider world.
know and understand significant aspects of the history of the wider world: the nature of ancient civilisations: the expansion and dissolution of empires.
characteristics features of past non-European societies:achievements and follies of mankind.
gain and deploy a historically grounded understanding of abstract terms such as 'empire', 'civilisation,' parliament' and 'peasantry'.
understand historical concepts such as continuity and change, cause and consequence, similarity, difference and significance, and use them to make connections, draw contrasts, analyse trends, frame historically-valid questions and create their own structured accounts, including written narratives and analyses.
understand the methods of historical enquiry, including how evidence is used rigorously to make historical claims, and discern how and why contrasting arguments and interpretations of the past have been constructed.
