At Our Lady of Good Help, the study of History is designed to ignite children’s curiosity about the past. The breadth of our History curriculum allows children to gain a coherent knowledge and understanding of Britain’s past and that of the wider world. We have carefully designed our History curriculum so that the children systematically build on vocabulary as they progress throughout the school. They will develop an understanding of the historical concepts of chronology, change and continuity, cause and consequence, and difference and significance using them to make connections within and across periods of time. History is taught through an enquiry-based approach whereby we encourage a lively and questioning approach to History. It is through this that the children will develop interpretation skills and the ability to effectively communicate their historical findings.
