The history curriculum has been sequenced to complement the increasing geographical understanding of the pupils. Topics are chosen carefully to give students a deep understanding of the era, whilst building a secure chronological understanding over the key stages. Children develop both substantive and disciplinary knowledge, not only gaining insight into historical periods, but developing an appreciation of history as a field of study and how historians’ views can change. Children can build and recall learning from earlier years, deepening their understanding of how historical periods fit together
