The aim of History teaching at Whale Hill Primary School is to stimulate the childrens interest and understanding about the life of people who lived in the past. We teach children a sense of chronology, and through this they develop a sense of identity and a cultural understanding based on their historical heritage. As a result, they learn to value their own and other peoples cultures in modern multicultural Britain and by considering how people lived in the past, they are better equipped to make their own life choices today. We teach children to understand how events in the past have influenced our lives today; we also teach them to investigate these past events and, by doing this, to develop their skills of enquiry, analysis, interpretation and problem-solving.
