Our Vision for History:

  • To know and understand the History of Britain as a coherent, chronological narrative from the earliest civilisations to changes within living memory.
  • To know and understand elements of global History and consider what was happening locally at the same time.
  • To make connections to modern society and consider how we can learn from key events in history.
  • To understand historical concepts such as continuity and change, cause and consequence, similarity and difference, and use them to make connections, draw contrasts, analyse trends and frame questions. 
  • To use an explorative, investigative approach to learning, with the freedom to explore and ask questions.


Shaping Our History: 

At Chorlton C of E we want our children to take an investigative approach to History, to discover for themselves, make connections to their own lives and consider what great people from the past have done for us. Our history curriculum has been shaped to ensure knowledge and skills are entwined with different aspects of historical content. In EYFS and KS1 children are given the opportunity to explore the key concept of it history itself, made relevant to their own lives and the lives of their families and locality. Once these concepts are embedded, children in KS2 will then explore the history of Britain in a clear, chronological order. Interspersed with that they will also learn about some of the most powerful ancient civilisations of Europe, Asia and The Americas. This allows them to make connections and look at differences and similarities between Britain and other parts of the world.


Our History curriculum is also drawn from: 

  • The History Association
