Achieving Excellence Together


The programme of study for History in Key Stage Two.


The children in Key Stage Two are taught to be inspired by History and develop a genuine interest and enjoyment in learning about past and how that links and informs their lives today. We want children to develop a chronological secure knowledge and understanding of British, local and world history. While learning about these events the children need to be able note connections, contrasts and trends over time and develop the relevant use of historical terms to explain them.

Below is an outline of the chronological History curriculum that our children will experience as a Saltergate student.
