“We are not makers of History. We are made by History.” - Martin Luther King
We believe that History is an exciting and engaging part of our Academy’s curriculum and that ‘a high-quality history education will help our pupils gain a coherent knowledge and understanding about Britain’s past and that of the wider world’.
At Leadenham C E Primary School, we promote the learning of History through cross-curricular activities and an enrichment programme of visits, visitors and workshops, designed to awaken and inspire our pupils’ inquisitiveness about the past.
Through the study of History, pupils at Leadenham CE Primary School will also develop the key skills of enquiring and posing questions, thinking critically, considering evidence and evaluating arguments. We hope that these skills will support pupils to reflect on the constant process of historical change and the diverse nature of societies and relationships, equipping them as global citizens to face the challenges of their lifetime.
