At Our Lady Star of the Sea Catholic Primary School, we believe in a creative curriculum which captures pupils' interests and imagination and heightens their curiosity. History challenges children to extend their knowledge and enables them to develop their skills as historians in four key areas – investigating and interpreting the past, building an overview of world history, understanding chronology and communicating historically.
As a school, we believe that high-quality history lessons encourage skills of critical thinking, weighing evidence, sifting arguments, and allow pupils to develop perspective and judgement. Pupils experience a rich and relevant curriculum and, wherever possible, links are made between subjects with overarching themes to contextualise and motivate learners.
Out of classroom learning is essential and varied class trips happen in every year to support learning.
