Lothersdale Primary School’s history curriculum enables children to gain knowledge and understanding of Britain’s past and that of the wider world.

We aim to inspire the curiosity of our children by allowing them to ask questions to discover more, know more and remember more.

Our curriculum enables children to develop their cultural capital by allowing children to develop the following key skills which are fundamental throughout all subjects:

  • ask perceptive questions
  • think critically
  • evaluate evidence from a range of sources (primary and secondary), and
  • examine arguments.

The history curriculum promotes an appreciation of our local area, Britain as a whole and the diversity of the wider world.
