History

Purpose of Study

A high-quality history education will help pupils gain a coherent knowledge and understanding of Britain’s past and that of the wider world. It should inspire pupils’ curiosity to know more about the past. Teaching should equip pupils to ask perceptive questions, think critically, weigh evidence, sift arguments, and develop perspective and judgement. History helps pupils to understand the complexity of people’s lives, the process of change, the diversity of societies and relationships between different groups, as well as their own identity and the challenges of their time.

Aims

The national curriculum for history aims to ensure that all pupils:

  • know and understand the history of these islands as a coherent, chronological narrative, from the earliest times to the present day: how people’s lives have shaped this nation and how Britain has influenced and been influenced by the wider world
  • know and understand significant aspects of the history of the wider world: the nature of ancient civilisations; the expansion and dissolution of empires; characteristic features of past non-European societies; achievements and follies of mankind
  • gain and deploy a historically grounded understanding of abstract terms such as ‘empire’, ‘civilisation’, ‘parliament’ and ‘peasantry’  
  • understand historical concepts such as continuity and change, cause and consequence, similarity, difference and significance, and use them to make connections, draw contrasts, analyse trends, frame historically-valid questions and create their own structured accounts, including written narratives and analyses 
  • understand the methods of historical enquiry, including how evidence is used rigorously to make historical claims, and discern how and why contrasting arguments and interpretations of the past have been constructed
  • gain historical perspective by placing their growing knowledge into different contexts, understanding the connections between local, regional, national and international history; between cultural, economic, military, political, religious and social history; and between short- and long-term timescales.

To mark the Centenary of the end of the First World War, St Edward’s commemorated this symbolic event with a whole school theme week which ended with the children (and staff) dressing up in war themed clothing. Our school also hosted a very special remembrance day sing-along and coffee morning.

The children sang much loved songs from both the First and Second World War and we invited our parish family – and the local community – to join us in a remembrance themed sing-along. We were extremely fortunate to be joined by previous pupils of St Edward’s, who now attend Trinity Catholic College, who came to help serve refreshments and sing in our  school choir. It was a wonderful day and a very special tribute to all those who bravely fought for us: lest we forget.

 

Meet St Edward’s Young Historians: we are members of Year 5 and Year 6 and we will be updating this page with news, events and all things History related!
