'A people without the knowledge of their past history, origin and culture is like a tree without roots.'
At Black Horse Hill, we are fully committed to delivering an engaging and purposeful history curriculum which enables children to gain knowledge and learn new skills. We aim to achieve this through: first-hand experience, (where possible), source-work, fieldwork trips and educational visits.
We strive to help children develop an interest in the past, which arouses their curiosity and motivation to learn where questions are encouraged. As Historians, children gain knowledge and understanding of Britain’s past and that of the wider world, enhancing their chronological understanding and use of historical terminology. Children learn about the history of their local area, and are able to describe the similarities and differences between then and now.
