Foulds School


In History the children will leave Foulds having developed the knowledge, skills and understanding laid down in the National Curriculum for History to the maximum of their potential.

At Foulds, we are Historians!

Children will:

  • access a challenging and creative curriculum
  • experience awe and wonder, when learning historical knowledge 
  • be interested and stimulated, whilst understanding about the life of people who lived in the past
  • have a sense of chronology and through this they develop a sense of identity, and a cultural understanding based on their historical heritage
  • value their own and other people’s cultures in society and modern multicultural Britain
  • know about significant events in British history, developing as a coherent, chronological narrative, from the earliest times to the present day
  • have knowledge and understanding of historical development in the wider world; by placing their growing knowledge into different contexts; local, regional, national and international history
  • leave with skills of enquiry, investigation, analysis, evaluation and presentation and how evidence is used to interpret the past


  • Work is recorded in topic folders for both Key Stages
  • Work can be photographed/filmed
  • Educational visits are booked according to what topic is being covered in History, to immerse children further into their learning 
  • Classes will build upon their learning from prior year groups and there should be regular opportunities to review the learning that has taken place in previous lessons and topics.
  • Topics are blocked to allow children to focus on developing their knowledge and skills, studying each topic in depth.
  • In KS1, History begins by looking at the children’s own personal history and introduces them to the idea of chronology and timelines.
  • In KS1, History will look at significant events and people who have shaped society, locally, nationally and globally.
  • In KS2, each year group studies aspects of local history, a British history topic and an ancient history topic.
  • In KS2, UK history is taught chronologically to allow children to confidently place each time period. This allows pupils to consistently build on previous knowledge and learning by placing previously taught History topics on a timeline.
  • In order to support children in their ability to know more and remember more, there are regular opportunities to review the learning that has taken place in previous topics as well as previous lessons.
  • At the start of each topic children will review previous learning and will have the opportunity to share what they already know about a current topic.
