History

 

 

We are in an exciting year of developing our curriculum provision at Frodsham Manor House. The curriculum webpages are being updated on a rolling program during the Autumn Term 2019.

This History page contains all of our new documentation and plans.

 

Our History curriculum is designed in a way that children leave school with a wealth of knowledge on how times have changed across Britain and worldwide. History helps pupils to understand the process of change, the diversity of societies, as well as their own identity and the challenges faced. Our history curriculum will equip the children to ask perceptive questions, think critically, weigh evidence, shift arguments and develop perspective and judgment.

 

We cover key skills, with a focus on progression throughout each year group building on prior knowledge. Class teachers are accountable and have autonomy in how they deliver historical concepts, although it is planned in a chronological order set out by the subject leader to provide coherence for pupils. We use creative and engaging ideas to inspire historical interest in children, with a want to find out more. Each year group has a progression map of key skills to embed throughout the school year. They key areas of learning in History are grouped as chronology, concepts, interpretation, enquiry and communication. The objectives set per year group are worked on throughout the year across each term.

 

Enrichment opportunities for history include  residential visits to Llandudno, France and Belgium, day visits to  a range of Museums, Beeston Castle. and Roman Chester.  Outdoor learning and living history days in school. We also welcome speakers to tell us about their experiences and often share historical artefacts from home.
