History

At Barnby Road Academy History is taught mainly by an integrated topic based approach, as part of our creative curriculum. We use as much first-hand experience as possible, for example by going on trips and having visitors and "experiences" come to us.

 

In History we aim to:

 

  • Fire pupils' curiosity about the past in Britain and the wider world
  • Encourage thinking about how the past influences the present
  • Help students develop a chronological framework for their knowledge of significant events and people
  • Foster a sense of identity and an increased understanding of pupils' own position in their own community and the world
  • Develop a range of skills and abilities - particularly those related to finding out about the past, explaining what happened and what people then and now think about what happened.
