Our History Curriculum
At Barnwell Academy our history curriculum helps children gain a coherent knowledge and understanding of Britain's past and that of the wider world. Children are taught to ask perceptive questions, think critically, weigh evidence, sift arguments and develop perspective and judgement. Children gain and deploy a historically grounded understanding of abstract terms such as 'parliament' and 'civilisation'. They understand historical concepts such as continuity and change and use them to make connections or draw contrasts.
