“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world!”
“History cannot give us a program for the future, but it can give us a fuller understanding of ourselves and our common humanity, so that we can better face the future.”
Robert Penn Warren
Vision and INtent
At Cheadle Primary School our history curriculum aims to develop the 4 key historical skills, which are as follows:
Hello, my name is Caroline Baker, and I am the history subject coordinator at Cheadle Primary. My job is to ensure that the provision at history at our school is of the highest standard. I aim for the study of History to be engaging, enjoyable, and rigorous.
Curriculum and implementation
At Cheadle Primary School our history curriculum is based on a chronological path of study once the children reach KS2. In KS1, the children learn all about history in relation to themselves (living memory) as well as key historical figures and events.
Core Knowledge and skills
Please click on the links below to see our subject progression documents for history.
The pupils will have developed the four skills and will have a secure understanding of the chronology of the UK and the wider world. To ensure this has occurred, the historical communication facet of the topic will have set success criteria which the teacher will utilise to assess progress and understanding. This success criteria will be differentiated to enable scaffolding and appropriate challenge levels.
cultural capital and enrichment
Cultural capital is the accumulation of knowledge, behaviours, and skills that a child can draw upon and which demonstrates their cultural awareness, knowledge and competence; it is one of the key ingredients a pupil will draw upon to be successful in society, their career and the world of work.
Our children have experienced a number of enrichment activities for history this year.
