History at Kingsway
At Kingsway our children receive a broad and ambitious History curriculum, grounded in the enquiry into events and peoples of Great Britain, Europe and The Americas. In Year 3, children learn about the Stone Age, moving through time to explore World War One in Year 6. By the end of the Key Stage, pupils will be able to plan and carry out their own enquiry into an area of history and link new knowledge to previously learnt facts and concepts in History and to other subjects across the curriculum.
Trips or visitors into school each half term allow all children to share a real life experience, further enhancing their understanding and knowledge of the unit of learning. Key concepts are presented to pupils clearly through a chronological curriculum, knowledge mats, revisiting previously learnt skills, quizzes, cross-curricular learning and real life experiences. Children at Kingsway leave Year 6 ready for secondary school with a broad, rich and coherent understanding of the history of Great Britain and the wider world.
