Aiming High Learning for Life

History

Through the teaching of history, we aim to stimulate the children's interest and understanding about the lives of people who lived in the past and how events in the past have influenced our lives today.

The children will study and look at a wide range of historical artefacts and primary sources to develop their skills to become able to analyse and comment on historical information. We also focus on helping children understand that historical events can be interpreted in different ways and that they should always ask questions about the information they are given, such as ‘how do we know?’

We also have links with the local museum and Bedford Chronicles, a group part of the Harpur Trust who work alongside our curriculum and help the children to learn more about the local history of Bedford.
