We have designed our history curriculum using our curriculum drivers and have therefore created an exciting programme of learning which helps children to learn exciting historical concepts, applied across a wide range of topics.

We have a number of concepts which children encounter over and over again as they move through the school and take part in different units of study and this helps them to connect their learning experiences and build a strong web of knowledge.

The key concepts which weave into every unit of study are:

  • Chronology
  • Power
  • Legacy
  • Exploration & Settlement
  • Conflict & Invasion
  • Culture, Religion, Diversity & Beliefs
  • Development of Civilisation


  • Continuity & Change
  • Cause & Consequence
  • Similarity & Difference
  • Sources & Evidence
  • Historical Significance
  • Historical Interpretation
