At Hutton CE Primary, the History curriculum aims to inspire in pupils a curiosity about the world and its people. Pupils will develop a chronological knowledge of Britain’s history and extend their knowledge of the past through the focus on events that occurred throughout the world. Four key themes will run through all the year groups: monarchy, Empire, migration and democracy – with an overarching theme of legacy so the children can make connections with our world today through events of the past.
