At Wilkinson Primary School the teaching and learning of History has several aims. We aim to provide opportunities for the children to understand and appreciate the multi- cultural and diverse world in which we live, as well as assisting them in developing a genuine enthusiasm for History. The children are taught key History skills such as enquiry, analysis and interpretation, to aid their development through a creative topic based curriculum. Educational trips and visits from History specialists enhance the History curriculum with first hand experiences and artefacts being shared with the children.
For history our intent is that all our children will aspire to know more about the past, understand how societies have changed, developed and influenced each other and developed key historical skills.
