History at RAMJS

Subject leader: Miss R Parkinson

 

The aim of History teaching at RAMJS is to stimulate the children’s interest and understanding about the life of people who lived in the past.  We teach children a sense of chronology, and through this our children develop a sense of identity, and a cultural understanding based on their historical heritage. Thus they learn to respect and value their own and other people’s cultures in modern multicultural Britain. We aim to promote the development of ambitious and loving minds through looking at the past and inspiring children to make a difference in our world ensuring that the mistakes of the past are not repeated in the future.  We also encourage pupils to be courageous learners; to ask questions, think critically, compare evidence, examine arguments and develop perspective and judgement. We help 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 to understand the present in the context of the past. By the end of KS2 we aim for the children in our school to leave filled with the hope and faith to create a bright future with a vast knowledge of the past and how it has influenced on the world today.

Vocabulary Progression

During this academic year we are going to have a big focus on being ambitious and developing our use of historical vocabulary both in and outside of our history lessons. Our teachers will be encouraging and challenging our children to learn these new words and their meanings to help us to articulate our ideas accurately and effectively.
