History 

Purpose and Aims

At NET, our History curriculums aims to ensure that all pupils:

  • Have a secure chronological understanding of local, British and World History from the Stone Age up to the present day.
  • Understand historical domains by carrying out their own historical enquiries, recognising similarities and differences, drawing contrasts, asking and answering questions.
  • Can articulate how a significant event/person, leader, civilisation, movement (migration/invasion) and modern history have impacted society (strands).
  • Evaluate and analyse a range of primary and secondary sources.
  • Can collate all of their acquired knowledge and understanding to form their own opinions, and create their own structured accounts, including written narratives.
  • Gain a historically grounded understanding of abstract and subject specific terms, and be able to use these confidently

Impart essential knowledge that has been planned progressively, through the NET curriculum, across key stage one and two. This planned knowledge will include vocabulary and concepts. The concepts will build upon one another year after year and refer to one another over time. The knowledge will be mainly teacher led.  Once the essential knowledge has been facilitated, teachers will plan a creative question to explore or task to complete (using careful guidance from the NET curriculum). This will most likely be differentiated through SOLO Taxonomy, which is how much you draw upon other essential knowledge to gain an opinion or answer. After exploration Blooms Taxonomy high order thinking skills will be the basis of a well-planned outcome activity where pupils will show their understanding of what they have learnt. Each history unit has a unit overview document which details the topic name, historical strand, prior knowledge, core vocabulary and knowledge to be embedded.
