History forms an important part of the curriculum at Wescott. We aim to  teach our children to understand the past so that they can make thoughtful observations and judgements about it. We believe that by learning about the past, the children can better understand the world we live in today and make informed decisions about the future. 

History is embedded in our topic-based approach to learning. Sequences of lessons are planned that build on and develop the children’s knowledge and skills. Our curriculum is mapped to enable children to develop an awareness of the past, using common words and phrases relating to the passing of time. They will start to know where the people and events they explore fit within a chronological framework and identify similarities and differences between ways of life at different times. As they progress, they will demonstrate a growing confidence and accuracy when using historical vocabulary.
