At Sheen Mount Primary School, many of our pupils have a curiosity about the world around them that has been fostered and encouraged at home.  Our History curriculum is designed to recognise children’s prior learning, provide first-hand learning experiences (which bring their learning to life) and make full use of the wealth of resources available to us in the local and wider area enabling children to broaden their historical knowledge and understanding.  Their historical enquiry skills are developed by providing them with learning opportunities in which they can ask questions, think critically, weigh evidence, sift arguments and develop perspective and judgement.  In line with the National Curriculum guidance, our aim is that pupils will gain a coherent knowledge and understanding of the interconnectedness of Britain’s past and that of the wider world and help them to better understand their own identity and the challenges of their time through comparing it to that of other people throughout history.
