At Whitwell Primary School, we believe that our History provision should not only inspire pupils to have curiosity and wonder about the world around them, but also should motivate them to explore further and deepen their understanding of the world.


In History, pupils are encouraged to investigate and ask enquiring questions in order to broaden and develop their perspectives. They will learn about how society has changed over time and the key events that have shaped the lives they live today.


They will participate in a practical topic-based curriculum, which incorporates access to real artefacts and visits to relevant sites of historical significance. Through a broad and balanced Humanities curriculum, the children are equipped to view the world with tolerance, respect and a deeper understanding of the many diverse societies of the world.
