History at Nevill Road Junior School
At Nevill Road, we aim for a high-quality history curriculum which should inspire the pupil’s curiosity and fascination about Britain’s past and the wider world. We shape our history curriculum to engage and motivate our pupils so they grow to become curious learners that can reflect on the past and make meaningful links to the present day.
Our aims are to fulfil the requirements for the National Curriculum for History, providing a broad and balanced curriculum that encompasses the British Values throughout. Our first aim is to primarily build knowledge, then we want to ensure that the curriculum provides a progressive development of historical concepts and skills for the children to understand the key ideas and processes of history.
We want our children to understand the methods of historical enquiry and be able to ask and answer questions to develop their knowledge and understanding. We want our children to enjoy learning about history and to gain knowledge and understanding of the chronology not just through experiences in the classroom but also through fieldwork, visiting workshops, and educational visits.
