History at Manchester Road
A high-quality history education will help pupils gain a coherent knowledge and understanding of Britain’s past and that of the wider world. It should inspire pupils’ curiosity to know more about the past. Teaching should equip pupils to ask perceptive questions, think critically, weigh evidence, sift arguments, and develop perspective and judgement. History helps pupils to understand the complexity of people’s lives, the process of change, the diversity of societies and relationships between different groups, as well as their own identity and the challenges of their time.
History National Curriculum 2013
The history curriculum at Manchester Road celebrates the rich and varied history of our local area alongside the chronological history of the United Kingdom and beyond. The curriculum is carefully planned so that children build up their knowledge of people, places and events in the past that have had an impact on the world and our country today. There is a strong focus on investigating and exploring, and an expectation that children will begin to understand how we know about the past and why it is so important.
