History Medium Term Planning
We use the National Curriculum as the basis of our planning, defining the four concepts and content that we engage the children with History Skills (Chronology and Understanding, Continuity and Change/ Cause and Consequence, Historical Enquiry and Historical Understanding). These are supported by the substantive knowledge concepts that underpin all year groups (Power, Civilisation, Trade, Beliefs). We select meaningful contexts to ensure the learning progresses and expands over time. The curriculum where possible links and is applied within the locality and local studies with each year group progressively building on the next to make connections and build the ‘sticky knowledge’ the children have.
History is taught for three half terms across the year. There are four key concepts across each year which are taught within this time. Teachers use the medium term planning alongside adaptations from adaptive teaching to ensure children to ensure children have the opportunity to develop a secure understanding of History.
