History at Park

Please note that we are currently updating our curriculum section of the website. We will be adding to this page in the near future to give you a better understanding of this area of the curriculum at Park. In the meantime, should you have any questions relating to the teaching and learning in this subject, please contact the school office; they will arrange for the Subject Leader to get back to you.

History teaching at Park Primary School aims to develop an interest in the past. Our teaching in History helps children to understand the past which then helps children to make sense of the present.

Through their learning in History we aim to develop core historical skills such as chronology, change and continuity, interpretation and empathy, use of sources and questioning.

Learning in History goes beyond the classroom with many of our year groups visiting historical sites to further enrich the children’s learning.
