History at Friars
- History at Friars aims to foster in children an interest in the past, develop an understanding of chronology, and develop the skills of historical enquiry.
- Key stage one focuses on changes within living memory, events beyond living memory, lives of significant individuals and significant events, people and places in London.
- Key stage two learn about ancient civilisations in Britain, and then in other countries of the world. From Year 4 there are topics that look at significant turning points in British history and link that to local history.
- History is taught once a term from Year 1 and each unit is half a term in length. There will be elements of history within the geography curriculum and vice versa.
