Here at Reignhead Primary School, we are very passionate about history and feel it is crucial for our children to learn about the past. We feel that history allows children to develop connections, empathy and a sense of identity by widening their understanding of themselves and others.
We pride ourselves on teaching a history curriculum which is real, relevant and engaging. We use a range of sources and artefacts to stimulate the curiosity of the children enabling them to ask questions, offer their own opinions and think critically. We focus on key vocabulary and key concepts so that children are also able to make significant links between their learning from previous years.
History is taught at Reignhead on a half termly basis allowing children the time to deepen their knowledge, understanding and to fully immerse themselves within a period of history.
We aim for every historian leaving Reignhead to be enthusiastic and have a confident knowledge of relevant British and global history.
