‘Be The Best You Can Be’



History tells the story of each and every one of us; people from this country and people from all over the world. History is the relationship between the past and the present; looking at people’s heritage and retelling the stories of where they came from. Studying people’s actions over time and how these cause change through analysing the evidence and studying the belongings left behind by past generations.

At Moston Lane, History lessons focus on developing historical enquiry and encourage the children to work as historians. Through an enquiry based approach, by the end of KS2 it is expected that children are able to ask relevant questions, pose and define problems, plan what to do and how to research, predict outcomes and anticipate consequences, test conclusions and improve ideas.

Our intent is that our teaching of History will help pupils gain a coherent knowledge and understanding of Britain’s past and that of the wider world. We aim for it to inspire pupils’ curiosity about the past and to know more about the past. We aim to enable children to ask perceptive questions, think critically, weigh evidence, sift arguments, and develop perspective and judgement. Through the teaching of History, we endeavour to teach children to understand the complexity of people’s lives, the process of change, the diversity of societies and relationships between different groups, as well as their own identity and the challenges of their time.
