History at Copeland Road.
Our History leader is Mrs Murray.
Our History governor is George Smith.
Children at Copeland Road are taught History in blocks throughout the year. This allows children to gain a deeper understanding of the topics covered. In History lessons, children learn using a range of different activities; these are both knowledge based and skills based. In addition to the National Curriculum topics, we also place an emphasis on learning about our local area.
When children leave Copeland Road Primary we would like them to be able to:
- Understand significant events in Britain and the wider world and how they have affected and influenced our lives today.
- Understand historical concepts such as continuity and change, cause and consequence, similarity, difference and significance, and use them to make connections, draw contrasts, analyse trends, frame historically-valid questions and create their own structured accounts, including written narratives and analyses
- Gain historical perspective by placing their growing knowledge into different contexts, understanding the connections between local, regional, national and international history; between cultural, economic, military, political, religious and social history; and between short- and long-term timescales.
The long term plan for History is below as well as the National Curriculum. There may be changes to the long term plan as we continue to recover our curriculum after National lockdowns.
