Essence of History

At Ash Green Primary Academy we want our children to have a coherent knowledge and understanding of Britain’s past and that of the wider world. We want to equip pupils to be able ask perceptive questions, think critically, weigh evidence, sift arguments and develop perspective and judgement.

What should we see children doing?

  • Know and understand history of islands
  • Know and understand significant aspects of the history of the wider world
  • Understand historical concepts such as continuity and change, cause and consequence
  • Understand methods of historical enquiry
  • Gain historical perspective
