At Mill Hill, we provide an exciting and thought provoking History curriculum. We aim to WOW, engage and encourage children to ask questions, lead their own learning and explore ways to develop their history knowledge and skills.

The curriculum will inform children of past historical events and significant people, which will allow them to understand how people have changed our world. Teaching is stimulating, personal and provides the children with life skills such as empathy, independence and questioning skills.

Children will have access to a multitude of activities such as, using and exploring artefacts, fieldwork and hands on experience in careers linked to humanities. We aim to stimulate, immerse and give children ‘BIG Dreams’ for their adult life.

History is part of our 3D curriculum and therefore has links across other subjects. From our whole school curriculum, we have unit overviews for history, which give the basis of the unit sequence, objectives, concepts and vocabulary. To assess the children’s knowledge and the content of our curriculum, we use cumulative quizzes throughout the unit. See below for an example of a cumulative quiz and unit overview.
