Vision for History 

Bringing the past to life!


History teaching at LGPS focuses on enabling children to think as historians.  

We aim to:

  • Connect our children to historical places in Bradford, Britain and the wider world
  • Provide our children with a knowledge-based, immersive and engaging curriculum that inspires their curiosity to learn more about the past
  • Develop a sense of chronology
  • Plan topics that are informed by the National Curriculum and are sensitive to children’s interests, as well as the context of the local area
  • Extend our children’s vocabulary of the passage of time and of everyday objects 
  • Support our children to develop historical elements: cause, consequences, change, similarities, differences and significance
  • Develop our children’s knowledge of people, events, situations and developments
  • Enable children to know about significant events in British history, and to appreciate how things have changed over time
  • Offer opportunities to tell stories of the past
  • Use a variety of primary and secondary sources, stories, digital technology, artefacts, trips, visitors and experiences to immerse our children in the past
