Our History Curriculum 

At Sacred Heart, we aim for a high quality History curriculum which inspires pupils' curiosity and fascination about Britain’s past and that of the wider world. We want children to enjoy and love learning about history by gaining this knowledge and skills, not just through experiences in the classroom, but also with the use of fieldwork and educational visits.

To support us in the delivery of History we use Rising Stars History which gives us the basis for a whole school approach to History. Gradually building up knowledge as the children progress through school. 

Key knowledge is linked to other subject areas and explored thoroughly through our class and whole school themes. These can be explored in our Curriculum Plans.


Knowledge Organisers 

We use knowledge organisers to help the children remember important vocabulary and information.  You can use these to help your child at home.
