History
 

At Falmouth Primary Academy we aim to develop a child’s interest and curiosity in the past and increase their knowledge of different periods of history. Children should acquire an understanding of events in this country as a coherent, chronological narrative and gain an understanding of significant events in the wider world during their time here at school. All children will develop analytical and evaluative skills when learning about the past and understand the role that evidence plays in the making of historical claims. Children will have the opportunity to learn about a range of different historical periods and societies – from the ancient Egyptians, to Vikings, to the Tudors and the history of the 20th century. Our history curriculum aims to impart knowledge of the past alongside the skills needed to interpret, compare, question and evaluate it.

To enrich our study of history, we regularly arrange school trips to places of interest connected to the topic being studied and also invite experts into school to share their knowledge.
