History Statement of intent:
At Wilbraham Primary, our staff have worked creatively to ensure History lessons are engaging and challenging, sparking the curiosity of our children. We aim to build upon prior historical knowledge, using metacognitive skills alongside a progressive curriculum to create a sound basis for understanding of both Britain and the wider world equipping the children for future learning. We want all our children to develop a keen interest in History through our knowledge and skills based curriculum, ensuring they understand how the past has a bearing on both the present and future. When examining evidence, we aim to ensure that our children think critically using a variety of sources, developing their historical knowledge, which in turn will help them to back their own opinions up with confidence and a greater depth of understanding.
