At Holy Rood School we aim to foster within our pupils a curiosity and interest in the past, an improving understanding of chronology and a broad and balanced view of the history of Britain and historical civilisations. The aim of the history curriculum here at Holy Rood Catholic Primary School is to stimulate the children’s interest and understanding about the life of people who lived in the past. Through this, we aim for children to develop a sense of their own identity and a cultural understanding based on their historical heritage.
Through the study of history, children learn to value their own and other people’s cultures in modern multicultural Britain and, by considering how people lived in the past, they are better able to appreciate the opportunities available to them in the modern world. We teach children to understand how events in the past have influenced our lives today; we also teach them to investigate these past events and, by so doing, develop the skills of enquiry, analysis, interpretation and problem solving.
