Our approach


The aim of History teaching at Dovelands Primary School is to stimulate the children’s interest and understanding about the lives of people who lived in the past. Children are taught a sense of chronology, and through this they develop a sense of identity and a cultural understanding based on their historical heritage. Consequently, children learn to value their own and other people’s cultures in modern multicultural Britain and, by considering how people lived in the past, they are better able to make their own life choices today.  At Dovelands Primary School, children are taught to understand how events in the past have influenced our lives today; with opportunities to investigate these past events and, by so doing, to develop the skills of enquiry, analysis, interpretation and problem-solving.
