We are all historians

At St Michael’s Academy, our history curriculum aims to inspire in pupils a curiosity and fascination about the world and its people. Our history programmes of study have been developed to provide pupils with a comprehensive knowledge of Britain’s past and develop their understanding of significant events in world history. In the Autumn term, all year groups cover parts of British History, from the Stone age, through the Roman Empire, Viking Invasions and World War II. Then later in the year we focus on key historic times in other parts of the world such as the ancient Egyptians, Greeks and Maya civilisations.

The programmes of study in history at St Michael’s Academy have been designed to equip pupils with the skills to ask perceptive questions, think critically about historical sources and evidence, and develop a rounded perspective and judgement on past events and how they may affect how we live now.

At St Michael’s Academy, history provides an excellent stimulus for cross-curriculum activities, particularly in writing and reading and also provides the link for many different learning opportunities through a varied and creative range of activities from art, drama, poetry and design technology. Trips to the Tutankhamun Museum and Nothe Fort, a Viking day and many other events all provide excellent experiences that enrich the children’s learning in history.
