At Newchurch Primary School, we believe that history is a tool of learning and communication and is about people and their development over time. History is essential to our understanding of the development of the modern world. Skills acquired and developed through the study of history are applicable to everyday life.

At Newchurch we aim to develop the following skills, knowledge and understanding:

  • Chronology

  • Events, people and changes

  • Interpretation, enquiry and using sources

  • Communication
