Great Harwood St John's CE History Intent
At St John's, we believe that the teaching of fun, engaging lessons that bring history to life helps children to enjoy learning and become life-long learners. We appreciate the value of enquiry based learning and therefore have designed our curriculum so that history lessons foster opportunities for children to be inspired and ask questions why. This involves taking children through significant periods in history from the Stone Age to World War II. Using a variety of teaching and learning styles, pupils are motivated to enquire, weigh evidence, sift arguments and think critically as they focus on recent eras of history, significant individuals and ancient civilisations from all around the world.
