History at Hitherfield


‘History helps pupils to understand the complexity of people’s lives, the process of change, the diversity of societies and relationships between different groups, as well as their own identity and the challenges of their time’ (National curriculum, 2014).

Our Hitherfield History curriculum is based on this premise. Pupils study a variety of historical periods within Britain and the wider world; reflecting the diversity of the Hitherfield community and providing an insight to how history has shaped our lives. Pupils also study people who have been inspirational throughout history; enabling them to see how they can overcome obstacles and achieve great things in life.

Through this, pupils develop a range of historical understanding and skills.
