Crossley Fields


Skills Progression


By the time children leave Crossley Fields, they will have a secure understanding about the past of their locality, Britain’s past and that of the wider world. They will be able to ask questions, think critically, weight up evidence and develop perspective and judgement. Children will understand the process of change which is frequently a part of everyday experiences. 

Key aims in the development of History are;

To foster in children an interest in the past 

To enable children to know about significant events in British History, to appreciate how things have changed over time and understand how Britain has influenced the wider world 

To develop a sense of chronology and understand how they fit into the framework of the past, present and future. 

To have some knowledge and understanding of historical development in the wider world, including ancient civilisations 

To develop the skills of enquiry, investigation, analysis, evaluation and presentation 

To ask historical questions  

To gain and use historical vocabulary 

To gain historical perspective by placing their growing knowledge into different contexts. 

To understand historical concepts such as continuity and change and cause and consequences. 

These approaches will be delivered through a curriculum which is relevant to themselves, to other children and to the requirements of all the National Curriculum’s History Programmes of Study.
