History

Every human is an artist.

A high-quality history education will help pupils gain a coherent knowledge and understanding of Britain’s past and that of the wider world. It should inspire pupils’ curiosity to know more about the past. Teaching should equip pupils to ask perceptive questions, think critically, weigh evidence, sift arguments, and develop perspective and judgement. History helps 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.

Learning about the past, preparing for the future.

A high-quality history education will help pupils gain a coherent knowledge and understanding of Britain’s past and that of the wider world.

At Zaytouna we have developed our history curriculum to ensure it is fully inclusive to every child.  In line with the National Curriculum we aim to provide a broad, balanced and differentiated curriculum for all our children. Our History curriculum is designed to ignite children’s curiosity and fascination about the past and to develop a love for history through engaging and motivating lessons.

We encourage school visits and visitors into school to enable the children to gain first hand experiences to support their learning.  We will provide opportunities for children to know what it means to be an historian, developing historical knowledge with an emphasis on developing specific historical skills including; understanding of chronology, interpretations of evidence, changes within a time and across time periods and cause and consequence.

We want all children to be immersed in and inspired by history.  We aim to equip all children with the knowledge to question and challenge sources, to think critically, weigh evidence, sift arguments, and develop perspective and judgement.

History helps 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.  We aspire to empower children to understand their identity personally, locally, nationally and globally not just while at Zaytouna but beyond into their later lives.

Wherever possible we aspire for our children to learn without limits by exploiting cross curricular links to enable children to know more and remember more.
