History

Subject Intent 

The History curriculum at Bridgewater Park Primary School makes use of resources within the immediate and wider local area enabling children to develop an understanding of the history of their locality, for example Norton Priory and Halton Castle. Topics are informed by the National Curriculum and are sensitive to children’s interests, as well as the context of the local area. Due to our small cohorts the History curriculum has been carefully planned and structured to a two-year rolling programme to ensure children gain a coherent knowledge and understanding of Britain’s past and that of the wider world which helps to stimulate pupils’ curiosity.
