At Blacko Primary School, we offer high-quality history lessons that inspires curiosity which will enable the children to become lifelong historians through a progressive curriculum. Teaching will equip pupils to ask perceptive questions, think critically, weigh evidence, sift arguments, and develop perspective and judgement. Our History Curriculum will develop an understanding of people’s lives, cultural diversity and provide pupils with a sense of their own cultural identify.

We want to inspire our children to have:

 

  • Upholding our PENNiNE Trust Values of Innovate, Include and Inspire in every aspect of our teaching and learning.
  • An excellent knowledge and understanding of people, events, and contexts from a range of historical periods and of historical concepts and processes.
  • The ability to think critically about history and communicate ideas very confidently in styles appropriate to a range of audiences.
  • The ability to consistently support, evaluate and challenge their own and others’ views using detailed, appropriate and accurate historical evidence derived from a range of sources.
  • The ability to think, reflect, debate, discuss and evaluate the past, formulating and refining questions and lines of enquiry.
  • A passion for history and an enthusiastic engagement in learning, which develops their sense of curiosity about the past and their understanding of how and why people interpret the past in different ways.
  • A respect for historical evidence and the ability to make robust and critical use of it to support their explanations and judgments.
  • A desire to embrace challenging activities, including opportunities to undertake high-quality research across a range of history topics.
