At Lavendon School our mission is for all of our children to become responsible citizens of tomorrow. We know that an essential part of this mission is the effective study and reflective learning of History.
Through following Dimensions’ “Learning means the World” curriculum, our pupils will develop their own cultural capital and take part in discussions around what it is to be a good UK and global citizen. History introduces pupils to diversity within different societies and the relationships between different groups overtime, challenging them to view events from different time periods and perspectives.
We aim to foster a strong sense of chronology within our children, teaching them how to place people, events or eras on to a historical timeline. Time related vocabulary is used within all of our history teaching from Reception to Year Six to enable our children to speak with confidence when comparing time periods, vocabulary increasing with complexity as children move up through the school.
