History Intent Statement

At Oughtrington, we want our children to develop a curiosity and fascination to find out more about Britain’s past and that of the wider world. Our aim is that all children have a fundamental understanding of key periods in history and to learn to ask questions about why things happened in the past and the impact of those events. Our teaching equips pupils with a coherent knowledge and understanding of Britain’s past and that of the wider world. Children will learn about ancient civilisations and empires; changes in living memory and beyond living memory; learn about the lives of significant people from the past and significant events in the past. We want our children to enjoy and love learning about history by gaining knowledge and skills through ‘WOW days’, objects and artefacts, experiences in the classroom and educational visits.
