History is an important part of the curriculum at King Edward Primary School. It is a way of our children understanding who they are and where the come from both locally, nationally and on a world level. At King Edward Primary School, we want to cultivate a curiosity about the past and an understanding of how it influences the development of the modern world. We want to fire our pupils’ curiosity about the past in Britain and the wider world. We feel it is important to develop their chronological understanding of periods of time whilst developing their appreciation for the need of both continuity and change. History is an important subject to give the children space to find their own evidence and reach their own conclusions. It is an important part of the curriculum that we value immensely.
