History Subject Vision

History fires pupils’ curiosity to ask questions and know more about Britain’s past and that of the wider World. At Selwood Academy we encourage pupils to develop a Chronological framework of British, European and World History, that will enable them to make sense of the new knowledge they acquire. History at Selwood helps to develop a range of investigation and problem-solving skills that are transferable to other curriculum areas and which promote children’s spiritual, moral, social and cultural development.

The topics we cover are sequenced chronologically from pre-1066 to 1945, the chapters are themed in order to help students accumulate sufficient substantive knowledge, which can be applied to develop Disciplinary historiography. We focus on how people’s lives have shaped this Nation and how Britain has influenced and been influenced by the wider World. By doing so Pupils’ begin to understand their place in the World today by studying where we have come from
