By the end of their time with us our children will know events that have informed our locality. They will have a broad knowledge of regional, national and international history and well-developed historical thinking. Their ability to investigate, consider, reflect and review events of the past will have enabled a good understanding. They will use their understanding of change and continuity, similarity and difference, cause and effect, chronology and significance to interpret events and developments. They will ask and answer challenging historical questions that make links between events, developments, peoples and periods in the past. They will know of and select from a range of historical sources when using their own skills of research, analysis and evaluation. They will use historical terms accurately in their effective communication of ideas and judgements. They will select and apply their knowledge and skills from other subjects to draw conclusions and communicate their findings.
They will enjoy learning, regard history as important and want more challenges and success. They will have a mindset that accepts that tentative conclusions are the norm. They will confidently carry out classroom tasks. They will have memories for life from visitors, visits and rich experiences. They will have a sense of social responsibility, respect for diversity and a willingness to engage with sensitive and controversial issues. They will feel prepared for the next stage of their history education. They will feel proud of themselves, their communities and their place.
