At Illogan we follow the guidance of the National Curriculum, where History is a compulsory subject across the year groups. EYFS introduces concepts such as then and now, asking questions and changes, linking these to relatable topics such as ‘food’, ‘nature’ and ‘growing older’. KS1 extend this historical enquiry to develop an understanding of key periods (Victorians, Tudors) and evolutions of key features (monarchs, schooldays) through history. In KS2 the curriculum looks deeper into specific time periods starting with the stone age and building closer to our time. This helps them develop enquiry skills, chronological awareness and critical thinking.
