The present comes from the past and is based on the past. We cannot understand the present without understanding the past.


Through being Historians, pupils will:

  • Know about and understand the past so that they can understand the present. 

  • Know that the way we are today is shaped by what has happened in the past.  

  • Develop understanding of change in life. 

  • Develop understanding of people, for example causes and consequences of actions 

  • Develop understanding and question the use of power. 

  • Recognise injustice and justice 

  • Develop as citizens through their knowledge of how society has developed, for example through democracy. 

  • Identify and understand their own place in the world 

  • Develop as critical thinkers.  

  • Develop the skill of discerning truth and untruth
