History

November 2019 saw the launch of our exciting new History curriculum! The children are really enjoying their new topics. They combine the statutory elements of the National Curriculum with the principles of the Gledhow Curriculum - growth, diversity and possibilities. Whether in KS1 or KS2, pupils will be encouraged to ask questions, think critically, evaluate source material, appreciate different viewpoints and develop their own sense of perspective. By deepening our children’s knowledge of history, we will help them to understand how the world has grown and changed over time, the diversity of people’s lives and the possibility for us to learn the lessons that will shape the future.

 

Knowledge organisers

As part of our new curriculum, we are sending home knowledge organisers. This is a sheet of paper that has all the key vocabulary and core knowledge for you to support your child's learning in our history topics. Please click on the documents below to see each organiser.
