History

History is 'championed' at Blackwater School by Mr. Hurrell

Here at Blackwater Community Primary School, it is our aim to instill a love of History in all our children. We want children to love history. We want them to have no limits to what their ambitions are and grow up wanting to be archivists, museum creators, archaeologists or research analysists. 

We aim to provide a history curriculum with appropriate subject knowledge, skills and understanding as set out in the National Curriculum History Programmes of study. We aim to provide an interesting and varied curriculum that interests and intrigues our children while meeting the needs of all backgrounds, cultures and abilities.

 From EYFS up to the end of KS2, the children will be taught about various historical events, where they take place within a historical timeline and famous historical figures, some of which have shaped the world today. We will, where possible, link History to other subject areas.

Please read our History Strategy for more of an understanding on how we teach this subject at Blackwater.
