At Ashcroft Infant and Nursery School, we have designed our History curriculum to ignite our children’s curiosity about exploring the past.

There is a focus on the development of the children’s specific historical skills and knowledge. This is taught through a topic-based approach and by giving the children hands on experience wherever possible. Our teaching of History equips our children with knowledge about the history of Britain, significant aspects of the history of the wider world, the lives of significant people from the past, and changes in living memory.

We want to teach children how to ask and answer questions about the past, developing their inquisitive minds and giving them the opportunities, through many different topics, to help them to love learning about History.
