At Madginford, History forms a key part of our bespoke curriculum, allowing us to encourage meaningful cross-curricular links and build children’s engagement with their learning.

It is important to us that we develop the skills associated with the study of History, such as investigating and interpreting historical sources, communicating findings and describing differences between periods and using an understanding of chronology to order and compare historical events.

These skills form a key part of learning in our topics, which can be found in the ‘Year Group Pages’ section. Our aim through teaching these topics is not just to broaden the children’s historical knowledge, but to make them more effective learners, developing skills that are transferrable to other areas of the curriculum.
