“The more you know about the past, the better prepared you are for the future.”
At Ghost Hill our intent is to ensure our history curriculum develops and fosters our children’s curiosity, interest, and enquiry about the past. Our children are provided with the scaffolding required to access the learning at all levels. Our history curriculum focusses on a carefully planned progression in skills, knowledge and vocabulary, which enables our children to develop their understanding over time drawing on prior learning to deepen and advance current learning. Through our topics, which act as a vehicle to the delivery of our carefully planned curriculum, we are focused on creating enthusiastic learners who over time develop an ability to empathise with historical content, as well as gain knowledge of the chronology of key events, famous historical individuals and their lives along with significant historical events in time, which have had an impact on how we live today.
