Being proud of History at The Avenue

Everyone at The Avenue both children and teachers are not only experiencing History within lessons, but throughout the whole school.

How do we approach History at The Avenue?

​The Avenue Primary school aims to give children an awareness of the past and how it was different from the present. Children are provided with the opportunity to develop a real sense of chronology and equip them with the ability to explore some of the ways historians find out about the past.

The focus in our teaching is for children to know and understand history from the earliest of times to the present day. As children progress through school, they will know and understand significant aspects of the history of the wider world including the nature of ancient civilizations and empires and their characteristic features. Children will be taught to understand the methods of historical enquiry, including how evidence is used rigorously to make historical claims and discern how and why contrasting arguments and interpretations of the past have been constructed.

By the time children leave the Avenue, they will have an understanding of how their lives are affected by the events of the past; a knowledge of the sequence of key events; an understanding of historical concepts; an ability to question sources and accounts; as well as a thorough enjoyment of the subject.
