Our overall intent is that pupils when they leave Y6 are competent in constructing their own historical arguments and accounts to give them an understanding and knowledge of the past in terms of people, events, dates, states of affair and places. By developing their chronological knowledge, we hope that they can understand the broad characteristics of periods of time as well as the way these relate to each other. 

Our golden threads are: power, settlements/migration and transport. 

For History, we have based our history curriculum upon the units of learning by Key Stage History, in addition to some of our own in order to fulfil the requirements of the National Curriculum and extend our pupils' learning and experiences further.  We have been very fortunate to work with the Wensleydale Railway to develop a bespoke unit of learning for both KS1 and KS2.  The documents below show the progressive key learning that takes place in this subject across all key stages.
