Bilton Infant School‘Be the best we can be’

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

History

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
  • Ensure appropriate historical vocabulary is introduced and consolidated
  • 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 enquiries.
  • Use and apply subject vocabulary, subject skills and processes
  • Each enquiry has a set of key questions to complete as they progress through the module.
