Bilton Infant School‘Be the best we can be’

Welcome toBilton Infant School‘Be the best we can be’


What do we want our curriculum to achieve?

  • Support all pupils to work historically through enquiry and an investigative approach
  • For pupils to increase and extend their knowledge of the subject
  • To master key concepts and subject skills by ‘doing less better’
  • Combine the application of key skills, processes and subject vocabulary with the development of knowledge and understanding
  • Ensure appropriate historical vocabulary is introduced and consolidated
  • Develop the ability to recognise, identify, describe, observe, reason, recall, compare and contrast, sequence, categorise, reason and interpret
  • Begin to explain significant historical events and the actions of notable people

How do we fulfil this?

  • Throughout KS1 we challenge and support children to carry out a number of historical investigations
  • Use and apply subject vocabulary, subject skills and processes
  • Each enquiry has a key question underpinned by sub questions to complete as they progress through the investigation
  • By the time pupils have completed the investigation they will be in a position to answer the key question
