At Langdale, history is taught mainly through a topic based approach. We aim to provide children with a high-quality education which allows the children to develop a strong understanding of Britain's past and the wider world. History lessons at Langdale give children the opportunity to learn about historical figures, examine how and why things have changed and the opportunity to compare and contrast different time periods. Children will learn a set of historical skills that will allow them to understand the history of Britain in a clear and chronological narrative, allowing our children to see important events in time whilst learning about significant events, people and places. Both KS1 and KS2 cover a range of key historical events and time periods in accordance with The National Curriculum and this is sometimes taught through a cross-curricular approach to further embed children's learning. By the end of each key stage pupils are expected to know, apply and understand the matters, skills and processes specified in the relevant programme of study.
