History at Reculver C of E Primary School


The teaching and learning of History at Reculver Primary School aims to support children in understanding, enjoying and appreciating the diverse and multi-cultural world that we live in today, celebrating the ways in which these cultures were formed. We aim to develop children’s knowledge and skills in describing, explaining, investigating and critically questioning the past on their journey to understanding the impact historical events have had on our existence. This will be achieved through high quality teaching and the opportunity to experience engaging trips or visits, enriching our pupils’ learning in line with our Cornerstones Curriculum, from EYFS to Year 6.

Each year group has selected units of work, which provide the children with a broad and balanced curriculum ranging from a study of dinosaurs in KS1, the Vikings in Years 3 and 4 to the complexities of WW1 and 2 in Upper KS2.  Furthermore, the children explore the history of our local area, studying Amy Johnson in KS1 and the importance of Reculver Towers and Barnes Wallace in EYFS and KS2.  Teaching the significance of key buildings and events that have taken place on our doorstep.

We also believe in the importance of providing opportunities to learn about historical figures and events beyond the planned lesson content for each Year Group.  Theme days are enjoyed throughout the year as well as whole school projects for example Black History Month.
