Topics / themes are informed by the Pathways to Write long term curriculum plan, which is directly linked to the national curriculum. All themes are sensitive to children’s interests and linked to the context of our local area and wider. The curriculum at UHPS is carefully planned and structured to encapsulate our curriculum intent of REACH (Relevant, Engaging, Aspirational, Creative and Holistic). We ensure that current learning is linked to previous learning as part of a sequential curriculum, enabling children to achieve the end of year expectations. In line with the national curriculum 2014, the History curriculum at UHPS aims to ensure that all pupils:
- Gain a coherent knowledge and understanding of Britain’s past and that of the wider world, which helps to stimulate pupils’ curiosity to know more about the past.
- Are encouraged and motivated to ask perceptive questions, think critically, weigh evidence, consider arguments and develop perspective and judgement.
- Begin 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 the challenges of their time.
