We would like all children to gain a love of learning about the
past. We want them to develop a sense of chronology, place
and how societies have developed and shaped our lives. To
learn about the History of our local area and how this has
changed over time and made Preston the place it is today. To
enquire, question and research in addition to gaining
knowledge about the periods of History studied. To compare
and contrast different periods of time confidently using a
time line. To enable our children to have a curiosity to find
out more about the past and represent their work in a range
History is a study of time and change. Pupils will gain an understanding of Britain’s past and that of the wider world. It should inspire pupils’ curiosity to know more about the past. Major historical events and periods are covered with reference to people alive at the time.
Children carry out local studies in which they trace historical influences within their local area. History helps pupils to understand peoples lives, the process of change, different societies and the relationships between different groups, as well as their own identity.
