Big Picture - Talk like an Historian
History unlocks information about the past and links it to the present using research skills and different sources. We can understand by asking questions and know how the past shapes the present and the future. It creates links and empathy with other generations and cultures.
At St Stephen’s Infant School, we want to engage children in a high quality history curriculum that will build a foundation for fascination, curiosity, and exploration of Kingswood’s past, Bristol’s past and that of Britain and the wider world. We focus on significant events and people and encourage children to make links with how these people and events might affect our lives today. We take opportunities to celebrate diversity with regard to different societies and people, and help children to make links with their own lives and member of the wider community.
