At The Winns we teach the National Curriculum for History which can be found here.
We do not believe that the study of history is simply the rote memorisation of facts. We believe that studying history helps us to develop important skills such as evaluating sources, drawing conclusions based upon facts and writing / speaking clearly and cogently.
However, more importantly, we believe that history provides identity and helps us to improve our decision making and judgment. It helps teach us how to learn from the mistakes of others and helps us understand change and societal development. Put simply history provides us with a context from which to understand ourselves and others and in a world of multiculturalism that is more important than ever. When teachers choose which historical events to learn about with the children we take into account the children’s backgrounds and cultural identity so that we can help the children understand themselves and their place in our society.
