We are Historians


In the Autumn term at Broadwater, we are historians!  The children learn the disciplinary principles of the subject as well as key facts of a specific topic.  Our history curriculum has two key themes running throughout: 

  • farming, trade & settlement
  • status and power 

The children build on prior knowledge and use higher order thinking skills to compare and contrasts empires, civilisations and time periods.  By the time the children leave the school, the children will learn that that the two themes can be completely linked. 

In addition, we ensure that we make meaningful links to the community and other subject areas throughout the topics.   

Please have a look at the key knowledge and skills the children will learn as they progress through the term and the school.
