History at St. Cuthbert's.

Our aims of teaching history are:

  • For children to develop a good chronological understanding and knowledge of key events and people in history.
  • To develop and range of historical knowledge and understanding.
  • Through historical enquiry to develop children’s ability to analysis and interpret both primary and secondary evidence.
  • Use a range of media including information technology, to present and discuss their historical understanding.
  • To develop an empathy for historical events and people
