History

Here you can find out about the History that happens across our school. We value the rich history of our local area and strive to teach the children in our school about their local area as well as history from further afield.

We currently learn our History skills through the Inspire curriculum. Children will receive knowledge organisers highlighting any key vocabulary and the content covered throughout the topic. We aim to develop children's curiosity about life in the past and develop their understanding of key historical themes throughout their time at The Beacon. 

In Key Stage 1 children are taught about key historical events from the British Isles alongside exploring the lives of some major historical figures from around the world. In Key Stage 2 children are taught history chronologically with more of an international focus.
