Our Vision for History


History is the study of the past, in particular the changes over time that have occurred within human society.. Working as historians, children at Birchwood Junior School learn about the important places, people and events that have shaped our world and still influence us today. Our history curriculum is influenced by Forest Skies Dream Big powers.

Discover – through learning about time periods across human history and what life was like for the people who lived then

Reasoning – making links between time periods and the reason why events happened as well as the consequences of these

Empathise – understanding the motivation behind decisions and how they affect the lives of ordinary people

Ask Questions – helping to develop independent enquiry and looking for bias and balance with sources

Make mistakes – evaluating our own learning and suggesting how we could do better and thinking of mistakes made in the past and how we can learn from these

Be Resilient – challenging ourselves and others to deepen our understanding through challenge questions

Imagine and create – working together to develop ideas; imaging what it might have been like to experience the lives of others

Grow – becoming confident historians who can link our understanding and ideas across the full curriculum



Our curriculum is outlined below but please feel free to pop into school any time and ask to speak with our History lead Miss Toyne. She is always more than welcome to answer any questions.
