Jenyns First School and Nursery

Our Children, Our Future.


Our History curriculum is based on the National Curriculum (link below) and supported using the Kapow scheme of work. We ensure that there is progression in the knowledge children are learning by carefully sequencing our topics and core texts, so that children build on existing knowledge and revisit areas of learning. 


The aim of history teaching is to stimulate the children's interest and understanding about the life of people who lived in the past. We teach to inspire pupils’ curiosity to know more about the past. We aim to teach your child to ask perceptive questions, think critically, weigh evidence, sift arguments, and develop perspective and judgement. Through this, they learn to value their own and other people's cultures in modern multi-cultural Britain and, by considering how people lived in the past, they are better able to make their own life choices today.
