History

At Bretherton Endowed C of E Primary School History is based on the National Curriculum. We intend to inspire pupils’ curiosity to find out about Britain’s past and the wider world. Teaching will aim to:

  • encourage critical thinking, discussion and questioning using a range of sources
  • help pupils to understand people’s lives, the diversity of societies and the relationships between different groups
  • focus on significant people and their influence today
  • highlight significant events in history
  • develop pupils’ understanding of chronology and ability to make links with different periods of time and important people and events within.
  • develop pupils’ knowledge of our school and Bretherton, Preston and Lancashire area, and how it’s changed over time

At Bretherton Endowed we approach History not just  by teaching facts, dates and historical events but by encouraging children to be History detectives.  By teaching History through a range of exciting and explorative ways, we foster genuine interest in the past. Using a wide range of resources, artefacts, experiences and visits allows us to enhance learning and children tell us how much they enjoy History lessons!  Children have the opportunity to visit places of interest to further develop their understanding of the past and enjoy recreating and finding out how those lived. Throughout school, history enables children to understand what happenned in the past and how it shaped the world we live in today.
