Humanities projects, (History and Geography) are the drivers for our curriculum that are ‘Text Rich’: ensuring the importance of developing the key skill of reading across the curriculum and a life-long love of reading being central to all that we do.


History Intent Statement

History helps pupils to understand the complexity of people’s lives, the process of change, the diversity of societies and relationships between different groups, as well as their own identity and the challenges of their time. At Scartho Infants School and Nursery, we aim to provide a rich and varied History curriculum that has been designed to encourage our pupils’ curiosity and fascination about Britain’s past and the wider world. The curriculum progression provides a clear learning journey across the whole school and will expand from exploring our own families and communities to investigating the whys and wherefores of events with and beyond living memory and the lives of significant individuals from the past. History is taught through enquiry – based projects that are inspiring and aim to develop children’s natural curiosity. Our History curriculum aims for our children to be inspired, engaged and challenged. We want them to leave our school able to ask perceptive questions, to think critically, to weigh evidence and sift arguments. We aspire for our children to develop into active learners who have a passion for History and are equipped with the skills to think and make decisions as historians.
