At Petteril Bank School our History Curriculum helps pupils to gain a coherent knowledge and understanding of Britain’s past and that of the wider world and inspire our children’s curiosity to know more about the past. We aim to support children in becoming equipped to ask perceptive questions, think critically, weigh evidence, and develop perspective and judgement through having an awareness of how things have changed from the past.

History is taught in blocks each half term alternating with Geography. We aim to provide hands on experiences by including visits where children can see and handle historical artefacts and begin to understand the footprints left from the past and determine the legacy they want to leave for future generations.
