History at St Joseph’s
At St Joseph’s we believe that a high-quality history education will help pupils gain a coherent knowledge and understanding of Britain’s past and that of the wider world. We aim to inspire children to become time detectives, developing their curiosity to know more about the past and develop their understanding of chronology. History teaching focuses on enabling children to think as historians in a fun and exciting way. Visits and artefacts will be used to bring the past alive and encourage children to investigate and develop their skills of enquiry.
Monitoring: Every term we assess how well the children have performed in their history skills (emerging, expected & greater depth) this show us how well the children are performing. The History Leader then collates this information and uses that, as well as information from monitoring teachers’ plans, lessons and children’s work to ensure our provision and pupil outcomes are the very best they can be. Any next steps to move the subject and the children’s learning forward are fed into the History Leader’s action plan, which is part of the whole school development plan.
