‘You have to know the past to understand the present’. Carl Sagan

Children at Newhall Primary Academy will leave school with a good understanding of chronology through learning about Britain from the Stone Age to the present day as well a realisation of the rich history in their locality. They will have an appreciation of how Britain has influenced and been influenced by the wider world. They will recognise how national and global historical events and individuals in history have shaped Britain and the world.


The skills and knowledge taught within each history unit support learners in navigating the wide-ranging curriculum found within in each element of history: history as a coherent, chronological narrative, significant historical aspects in the wider world, historical abstract terms, historical concepts, historical enquiry and perspective.
