“Inspiring a curiosity of the past”
Introduction and Overview
At St Mary's, we inspire young historians and give them the skills, knowledge and learning experiences that promote an enthusiasm for and enjoyment of history. The curriculum is our model of progression. Knowledge (disciplinary and substantive) increases in complexity from EYFS through to the end of KS2 in a carefully structured sequence. Our curriculum empowers children to make sense of the world around them and the multiple identities we all navigate as British Citizens in a global society; broadening and deepening a curiosity about people and place.
Our timeline develops during a child’s time in our school, helping them to gain a coherent knowledge of the past.
