Vision for History
We aim to provide our children with a Humanities curriculum that provides pupils with an engaging curriculum that allows them to study past events and learning from these to make informed choices moving forwards. We seek to broaden children’s real-life experiences both inside and outside of school through educational visits, visitors, experimentation, exploration and discovery. Within lessons, our children will acquire a range of knowledge and skills that will enable them to evaluate historical sources objectively. Furthermore, it is our aim that through historical learning children will become accountable citizens, understanding their role in protecting their world and environment; knowing how they can cause positive change and development as they grow.
Subject Leader - Miss Harvey
I am Miss Harvey, Year 5 Class Teacher and History Subject Lead. I have led History at The Priory since October 2019 and I have really loved having the opportunity to advance the way History is taught in our school. I studied History A-Level at secondary school and it has always been a keen passion of mine!
I love going to explore different places around the UK and the world that are of historical significance. As I am from Wolverhampton (and was previously not too familiar with Wednesbury) I have loved spending the last few years learning about the History of our school’s local area. I have tried to include as much local history as possible into our curriculum to ensure our children are knowledgeable about the area they come from. I have also worked to broaden the diversity included in the topics we teach as I feel very passionately that History is key to help our children emphasise with those around them and gain a deeper understanding of the world.
If you have any questions regarding the teaching of History at our school then don’t hesitate to get in touch!
