History builds upon a number of skills which can be used in all subjects and future employment. Pupils will develop a wide range of skills in enquiry, cause and consequence, knowledge and understanding as well as significance and interpretation.

Within History pupils learn to develop their own learning skills such as:

  • Independent enquiry – Learning to ask questions to develop their knowledge of key events
  • Effective Participation – Getting involved in lessons through project work and re-enactments
  • Creative Thinking – Thinking about the importance of key events from a range of perspectives
  • Team Work – Working together with pupils on key tasks to reach a common goal
