History Subject Overview
At William Cassidi we intend to provide all children with a high-quality history education that will help pupils gain a coherent knowledge and understanding of Britain’s past and that of the wider world. We believe history should inspire pupils’ curiosity to know more about the chronology of past events as well as develop their knowledge of historical vocabulary. Teaching should equip pupils to ask perceptive questions, think critically, weigh evidence, sift arguments, and develop perspective and judgement. History should enable pupils to understand the complexity of people’s lives, the process of change, the diversity of societies and relationships between different groups, as well as their own identity and the challenges of their time.
The revised EYFS framework became statutory on 1st September 2021. We use the EYFS framework document and 'Development Matters' to plan and teach our early years curriculum. Our early years team are in the process of writing our new curriculum and updating our subject overviews to reflect these changes.
