WHY CHILDREN ARE TAUGHT HISTORY IN SCHOOLS –

ACCORDING TO THE GOVERNMENT

History is on the primary syllabus in order to give children an introduction to the key events that have shaped Britain over time, and its place in the world as a whole.

Knowledge of these events will create an understanding of how and why the modern world has become what it is today, and inspire a deeper curiosity for learning about how societies and people’s lives have changed as time has passed.

This guide consistently keeps the goals of the new national curriculum in focus, as it has been put together with this government aim in mind.

WHAT ARE THE AIMS OF THE HISTORY SYLLABUS?

History is a key component of a child’s education. It allows for children to learn all about the history of the world in which we live. It provides an overview of different eras, ages, people and events, which shows how the world has evolved into what it is today.

The syllabus provides children with:

  • An understanding of British history as a chronological narrative from ancient times to the present day, focusing on how the British people as a whole have been influenced by the rest of the world, and indeed, how they have made their own influence felt.
  • An understanding of the essential events and features of the history of the world as a whole, focusing on the earliest civilisations, most powerful empires, and the most important ways in which humanity has succeeded and failed.
  • A wide historical vocabulary and an understanding of wider terms and concepts such as ‘civilisation’ and ‘society’.
  • An introduction to wider historical concepts such as: continuity and change, cause and consequence, similarity, difference, and significance; and use them to make connections, draw contrasts, analyse trends, frame historically valid questions, and create their own structured accounts, including written narratives and analysis.
  • An understanding of the importance of evidence when putting forward historical opinions. This also includes thinking about why some people interpret events or facts differently.

An introduction to historical perspective by considering contexts such as locations, economics, politics, religion, and key points in time.
