At Teynham Primary School, history KS1 and KS2 objectives are taught as part of cross-curricular topic work. History objectives are covered by numerous topics within KS2 lessons. To guarantee full coverage, the complete list of objectives are linked with a topic that can best employ the taught skills into a real world context.
A high-quality history education will help pupils at Teynham School gain a coherent knowledge and understanding of Britain’s past and that of the wider world. It will inspire our pupils’ curiosity to know more about the past. It should equip pupils to ask perceptive questions, think critically, weigh evidence, sift arguments, and develop perspective and judgement. History will help our 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.
