Victoria Park Junior School History Curriculum

 

At Victoria Park Junior School we aim to create an exciting and thought-provoking History curriculum. As well as learning about Britain's past, we also look to the wider world in order for children to gain good knowledge of how the past has shaped the modern world. The aim of History at VPJS is to inspire pupils to grow their curiosity, think critically and develop their research skills. A good understanding of History also supports children to show respect and equality towards others by learning about other civilisations and societies. By looking into the process of change. children can also develop aspirations for their own futures.

 

The History curriculum at VPJS has been organised chronologically from the earliest records of the Stone Age up to 1066 and beyond.
