History at Chad Vale
History at Chad Vale equips the children with knowledge and understanding of local and global history, through discrete history topics and learning explored in many other subjects.
Throughout KS1 and KS2, we teach the children about events in the past that have changed the world, in order that they understand and appreciate how our society, environment and culture, came to be and relate them to the issues facing us today.
Learning about history provides opportunities to develop curiosity and important research and enquiry skills that are transferable to other subjects such as science, geography and English; this allows children to develop perspective and relate historical events to the modern world.
Learning about historical events provides opportunities for discovery, debate and discussion about the decisions people make and how they can affect others in a positive and negative way. History at Chad Vale teaches our children how to think objectively and become caring, respectful and thoughtful citizens who will help to protect the future by remembering the past.
