At Greave primary school we aim to deliver an engaging and inclusive history curriculum in line with the national curriculum. We will support the children's understanding of chronology by delivering our history curriculum largely in a sequenced chronological order in conjunction with timelines, allowing children to develop their understanding of historical concepts and the passing of time as they move through school. Through an enquiry based approach children will develop their curiosity of the past and the world around them, asking and exploring historically valid questions and reporting their findings by drawing on knowledge and skills from across the curriculum. They will learn the fundamental elements of what it means to be a historian and will learn to research, question and compare information they encounter, progressing their understanding of knowledge and skills as they journey through school.
Black History Month
Last month was Black History Month. At Greave we celebrated this important event across school by exploring different black individuals who have made significant contributions to their field.
In Early Years they learnt about Ngadi Smart, a black British artist. She designed the poster below for the National History Museum for an event celebrating Black natural history. The children then created their own collage in the style of Ngadi.
