At Royton Hall Primary School, history is taught through a thematic curriculum so that the children develop an understanding of how the past influences the present; develop a chronological framework for their knowledge of significant events and people; and develop a range of skills and abilities, especially those related to finding out about the past, explaining what happened and what people in the past and present think about what happened.


Through teaching history as part of a thematic curriculum we are:

  • Developing pupils’ skills across the curriculum, especially in literacy, numeracy, ICT, PSHE, geography and art
  • Promoting pupils’ awareness and understanding of gender, cultural, spiritual and moral issues
  • Helping pupil to develop a sense of identity and citizenship


We aim to bring the past to life by creating opportunities for children to use a variety of sources of information to find clues and evidence, take part in discussions with their peers and through inviting visitors and arranging visits to sites of historical interest and museums. We are continually building up stocks of interesting artefacts and books, and children are taught how to investigate and record their findings in interesting and creative ways including writing, art, music, drama and ICT.
