Time and chronology - There will be a focus on developing an understanding of chronology and the passing of time
Evidence and the past - Children will explore the past and the different ways it is represented. Children will be encouraged to ask questions and answer them using sources to develop their understanding
Connections, changes and  impact -Children will focus on the similarities and differences of periods of time and identify the impact of events and individuals on the world


It is important to us that we develop our pupils’ understanding of chronology and the passing of time. We focus on a broad range of significant individuals and events from the past and explore the impact of these. Children are encouraged to use evidence and sources to find out about the past. As part of our History teaching, we take a ‘Step Back in Time’ and regularly explore a person or event from the past in order to broaden the pupils' knowledge of the world as much as possible.
