We are Historians

Our high-quality History curriculum will inspire our pupils’ curiosity and fascination about significant events and people in the past. The teaching of history will enable pupils to learn about and understand local history, British history and that of the wider world both within and beyond their living memory. As pupils progress throughout key stages, their growing knowledge should help them to deepen their understanding of how different events in the past have shaped their future. They will be equipped with the knowledge to think critically, consider historical evidence, ask questions, understand reason and result and leave St Aloysius as a Historian. 


In EYFS, the children begin learning about history when they talk about past events in their living memory. We encourage them to talk about things that they can remember from their past. Our learning is based on the requirements of the EYFS framework and is guided by Development Matters. In EYFS, we also commemorate certain days including Bonfire Night, Remembrance Day and Diwali so that the children can begin learning about events that happened in the past.


As children move into KS1, they build on these strong foundations, developing their knowledge of local and British history that is within and beyond their living memory. In KS1, our pupils develop an awareness of the class and are able to compare past events to their own lives.


As children progress into KS2, they extend their knowledge and understanding beyond the local and British history to the wider world. This will include learning about ancient civilisations and comparing world history to British history. They have developed a chronologically secure knowledge of different time periods and can ask questions about change, cause, similarity and difference, and significance.
