The study of History should inspire children’s curiosity about the complexities of the past to enable them to consider the present and look to the future. We use the Connected approach to teaching History at Bearnes, which is an enquiry-based approach with both a key question and ancillary questions to pique children’s interest. The learning is structured towards finding answers in creative and memorable ways whilst ensuring National Curriculum coverage, both in depth and breadth, is achieved.  


Children are taught to think critically, explore, and assess evidence to empathise with and understand the history of Britain and the wider world. Understanding of key concepts such as empires, invasions and trades are covered with a focus on subject specific vocabulary to enable all learners to develop a mental timeline of important events throughout history, which shaped the world we live in today.
