At Broughton Community Schools we aim to produce inquisitive, perceptive historians who understand their own past and that of the world they live in.
Our children will learn about famous people and places, as well as global events in history. The History Curriculum empowers learners to become curious, to develop their own opinions based on a respect for evidence and to build a deeper understanding of the present by engaging with and questioning the past. Skills will show progression from early years through to the end of key stage two. The history curriculum will be embedded into the Cornerstones curriculum.
The Creative Curriculum has been organised through a ‘topic based’ approach which incorporates the key skills set out in the New National Curriculum (2014). Each class teacher is responsible for the delivery of the Creative Curriculum. The projects last for a term with at least four sessions a week.
How can you support your children at home?
Each term, you will receive a year group newsletter which will outline the topic that your child will be investigating. There will also be a task sheet with suggested activities to complete for home learning.
History is all around us! Aylesbury is full of history. There are monuments in the town centre and museums to explore and not forgetting the amazing museums in London. The Horrible History clips also give children a fun insight into the different time periods in history.
Our history day was called 'The history of ...' and adults were given a history topic to investigate. For example, the history of fairgrounds and the history of computing. All the children from year 1 to year 6 were arranged into mixed year group classes for the activities. This allowed our children to have the opportunity to work together and to support each other.
