HistoryAt Chenies, we strive to develop the children’s curiosity about the past, including through field trips to local sites of historical interest. We want them to gain a clear chronological understanding of past eras, as well as an appreciation for the complexities of those times and of the lives of the people who lived through them. Through the study of history, the children will gain the ability to ask perceptive questions, to think critically, weigh evidence, and to formulate judgements based upon the application of those skills.
We follow a two year curriculum cycle across the foundation curriculum, ensuring that children cover all areas of the subject during their 2 years in a class. This ensures all areas of the National Curriculum are covered and embedded.
Whilst our children are taught in a mixed class, different skills are developed in each year group as they progress through the school within each subject.
