History

 

The Curriculum Co-Ordinator for History is Mr Blackburn

History is an important part of our curriculum and school follows the National Curriculum Programmes of Study as well as the Lancashire Programme of Study. In History we ensure that we are covering a range of key historical skills in each topic: Chronology, Events, People and Change, Communication and Enquiry, Interpretation and Using Sources. Each topic we study in History has a clear link to the National Curriculum. History is studied each term in every class in school.
