History – Curriculum information

Our vision, at Broadacre, is to create historians of the future. We aim to provide children with the opportunity to develop a broad chronological understanding of global and local history. Our city’s history is celebrated in our curriculum, enabling children to develop a deep understanding of the rich history of their local area. Our carefully structured curriculum helps pupils to build on previous learning as they progress through the school, helping them to understand the process of changes over time. History at Broadacre also allows children to see how aspects of modern-day society have been moulded and influenced by a range of people and events throughout time.

Our goal is to inspire pupils’ curiosity to know more about the past. We will provide all pupils with the opportunity to make their own discoveries about the past and provide them with the skills to consider evidence, think critically and develop their own judgements and perspectives.

As historians, children at Broadacre will:

  • Have access to a range of historical artefacts to help them make their own discoveries about the past.
  • Understand the complexity of people’s lives; the process of change; the diversity of societies and relationships between different groups, as well as gaining a greater understanding of their own identity and the challenges of their time.

We believe that teaching history in this way is important in broadening children’s horizons, challenging preconceived ideas and developing life skills.
