Our History Curriculum

At Kitwell, we aim to create pupils who have an understanding of the past and its implications for the present. 

Children at Kitwell will learn about people's lives and lifestyles. We aim to provide activities where pupils will develop a lively curiosity, a sense of chronology and an awareness of the past through stories and other information sources.  Where possible, children will make links between the different eras and compare it to life today. 

Pupils begin initially by investigating their own and their family history. They then move on to study local history and important episodes in Britain's past and about the history of other cultures and parts of the world. They also learn that the past can be interpreted in different ways.
