At Portfields Primary School, we are dedicated to providing a high-quality enriching History curriculum from EYFS to Year 6. Your children will be equipped with the skills and knowledge to understand major worldly events which will evoke their curiosity to find out more. Moreover, as historians, they will be able to develop perspective and judgement when thinking critically about these events.
EYFS and KS1
Children at Portfields Primary School will be exploring significant individuals from the past: beginning to look at the cause and effect of their actions that lead them to become significant. This will be achieved through reading stories, exploring artefacts, sequencing events in a timeline and comparing the lives of significant historical figures. To facilitate their learning journey, the children will embark on educational visits to Milton Keynes Museum, Dome Space and Warwick Castle.
The children in KS2 will build upon their skills and knowledge that will equip them as historians through comparing the aspects of life through different eras on a local and global level. This will be achieved through: understanding changes in Britain from the Stone Age to the Iron Age; learning about the Greek and Roman Empire along with their impacts on Britain – with an educational visit to Bradwell Abbey; understanding early British settlement; extend pupils knowledge of Britain beyond the Battle of Hastings in 1066.
