At Dogsthorpe Academy, we have always held history in high regard and we continue to celebrate our local history. The history curriculum has been designed to link to the locality where possible ensuring children gain a rich understanding of the historical value of their locality. The topics are informed by the national curriculum and are further designed to pique curiosity within children about their surroundings. The design of the curriculum is intended to allow knowledge to be linked to prior learning and build on these outcomes. Giving children a sense of chronology within the areas of history studied is imperative and we aim to ensure children understand where the areas they study, as well as themselves, link in the grand scheme.
All knowledge has been taken from the national curriculum and is linked in a topic focussed curriculum where subjects link to increase student’s knowledge of a given topic.
