Ingoldmells Academy


We believe that a well-rounded History curriculum will allow children to gain a coherent knowledge and understanding of Britain’s past and that of the wider world.

Children explore key concepts as they move through the school. Our curriculum is laid out in such a way that the children will initially learn about their immediate history, that being their family and location. This will be a starting block in EYFS and built upon as they enter Key Stage 1. Once this is consolidated, they will gain a wider experience of global history. As a child moves through our school, their historical knowledge and understanding will deepen as it would have been built on the foundations laid in the previous years.

We have taken the decision to teach our pupils the British History programmes of study in a chronological order. This supports their understanding of the events in order and prior learning is revisited before the delivery of each new area of learning. 

Knowledge organisers are used to support the key facts in History – these are sent home to parents and used within the classroom.

Guidance and resources have been taken from Key Stage History to further support the effective delivery of enquiry-based history learning.
