Thinking about the present by learning about the past.
Our intent at Bartley is that our taught units of History will build upon children’s understanding of the past; where things were different from today (KS1). We aim to foster a love of learning (enquiry) about how significant past events have helped shape the way we live and will continue to evolve our future.
At Bartley we follow the six-step approach to Historical enquiry: Motivation; collation of information; processing; concluding; refining; demonstration of understanding. Each year, children will be taught two units of work over 6 weeks which builds on previous units. They are encouraged to make links and connections of both Britain's past as well as History from around the world.
