At Bournville Primary School, we are historians! We want our children to love history. We want our children to remember their history lessons in our school and to share our excitement for the subject.
At Bournville our history curriculum begins in the EYFS (Early Years Foundation Stage) where children will begin their understanding of History through sequencing of familiar past events. As children move through the school, they will be exposed to a curriculum planned in chronological order to secure their understanding of what has gone before, and the impact events can have on each other.
In History pupils are encouraged to question their understanding of the past allowing them to enjoy all that History has to offer. Using artefacts and exciting trips, pupils gain an in-depth understanding of momentous events in World History as well as appreciating how things change over time. At Bournville we want children to be excited and curious in the world around them!
