Lowe’s Wong Anglican

Methodist Junior School

Everyone at Lowe’s Wong Junior School is expected to take responsibility for their learning and to respect themselves and others



The intent of our History Curriculum is to develop within our students:

  • A passion for history and an enthusiastic engagement in learning, which develops their sense of curiosity about the past and their understanding of how and why people interpret the past in different ways. 
  • A coherent chronological understanding of the history of Britain and its relationship to concurrent world history.
  •  An excellent knowledge and understanding of people, events, and contexts from a range of historical periods
  • The ability to think like a historian - to reflect, debate, discuss and evaluate the past, formulating and refining questions and lines of enquiry. 
  • The ability to consistently support, evaluate and challenge their own and others’ views using historical evidence from a range of primary and secondary sources. 
  • A desire to embrace opportunities to undertake and present high-quality research across a range of history topics.


The implementation of our History Curriculum:

Our history projects are sequenced to provide a coherent subject scheme that develops children’s historical knowledge, skills and subject disciplines. Key aspects and concepts, such as chronology, cause and effect, similarity and difference, significance and hierarchy, are revisited throughout all projects and are developed over time. All projects also develop historical skills based on evidence and historical enquiry.

The choice of historical periods follows the guidance set out in the national curriculum, with specific details relating to significant events and individuals chosen to present a rich and diverse account of British and world history. Throughout the history scheme, there is complete coverage of all national curriculum programmes of study.  Where there are opportunities for making meaningful connections with other projects, history projects are sequenced accordingly. 


The intended impact of our History Curriculum is that:

By the end of KS2, our children will have developed the historical knowledge and understanding of how the world has been shaped by past events. Our pupils will have analytical skills and a sense of curiosity, enabling them to be able to ask perceptive questions.  They will be able to think critically and weigh up evidence with perspective and judgement.  Children’s knowledge and skills will develop progressively as they move through the school.   This will not only enable them to meet the requirements of the National Curriculum but prepare them to become competent Historians in Secondary Education.
