Langford Village Academy


History is taught following the Kapow scheme of work which is adapted for each class. It is carefully planned and structured to allow children the opportunity to meet all National Curriculum objectives, ensuring the development of historical concepts, knowledge and skills is progressive and cumulative while also developing a love of history. We will also extend history learning beyond the classroom to include visitors, educational workshops, trips and experiences as needed to enhance the curriculum.

This begins in Foundation Stage to enable children to develop the skills and knowledge to think about their own past and how they personally have changed and developed over time, beginning to create time lines in their own personal life. We want the children to develop a well-rounded knowledge of the past and its events, with intention to improve every students’ cultural capital, understanding of the world around them and their own heritage. We want the children to be confident using their historical skills of collecting information and being able to ask perceptive questions, think critically about the content, look at evidence and sift arguments. We want the children to be able to talk about what they have learnt.
