History at Ludworth
At Ludworth, we want all children to be inquisitive, ask questions and have their thirst for finding answers about historical events and people to develop their historical knowledge. We aspire for children to have a strong understanding of the past, how our lives have changed over time, the impact on our lives today and how history will shape their futures. Through the systematic and chronological teaching of history, we aim to develop critical thinkers who see history from different perspectives, ask questions and are able to generate their own opinions and arguments. We want children to confidently articulate their findings and back them up with evidence.
Our whole history curriculum is shaped by our school vision that aims to enable all children, regardless of background, ability, additional needs, to flourish to become the very best version of themselves they can possibly be. We teach the National Curriculum, supported by a clear skills and knowledge progression.
Our history Curriculum has been specifically designed and carefully structured to ensure children know more, remember more and build on historical knowledge as they progress through our school. This ensures that skills and knowledge are built on year by year and sequenced appropriately to maximise learning for all children. It is important that children develop the skills of a historian by fully immersing them in all areas of the subject.
The local area of Marple Bridge is fully utilised to achieve desired history outcomes, with opportunities for learning outside the classroom embedded in practise. School trips are provided to give first hand experiences, which enhance children’s understanding of life in the past.
