Our vision for History
At Spurcroft Primary School, we aspire for our children to be responsible learners by being curious about the past and understand how it shapes our future. We are committed to providing opportunities for them to develop a deep understanding of the chronology of British history and make links between time periods. We allow our children choice in their learning to enable them to become creative and critical thinkers. Exploring local history and British history helps our pupils to understand their place in our community and country, while making links to worldwide history enables them to recognise their position in the wider world.
We follow an enquiry based approach to the teaching and learning of history. We encourage children to think, question and wonder about the past as well as to learn from it.
