The aim of history teaching at City Road Primary School is to stimulate the children’s interest and understanding of the life of people who lived in the past. We teach children a sense of chronology, and through this they develop a sense of identity and a cultural understanding based on their historical heritage. As a result, they learn to value their own and other people’s cultures in modern Britain, where societies are diverse. We teach children to understand how events in the past have influenced our lives today. We also teach them to investigate these past events and, by so doing, to develop the skills of enquiry analysis, interpretation and problem-solving.
