History

History Intent

 

At Gatcombe Park Primary school, we aim to develop children as historians who demonstrate these characteristics:

  • A curiosity about the past and a developing understanding of how and why people interpret the past in different ways;
  • An excellent knowledge and understanding of people, events and contexts from a range of historical periods, including significant events in Britain’s past and significant people and events from their locality;
  • The ability to think critically about history and communicate ideas confidently to a range of audiences;
  • The ability to support, evaluate and challenge their own and others’ views using historical evidence from a range of sources;
  • The ability to think, reflect, debate, discuss and evaluate the past by formulating and refining questions and lines of enquiry;
  • A respect for a range of historical evidence and the ability to make critical use of it to support their explanations and judgements;
  • A desire to embrace challenging activities, including opportunities to undertake high-quality research across a range of history topics.
