Lowton Junior & Infant School


At Lowton Junior and Infant School, we shape our history curriculum to ensure it is fully inclusive to every child. Our aims are to fulfil the requirements of the National Curriculum for History; providing a broad, rich and balanced curriculum that encompasses the British Values throughout; ensuring the progressive development of historical concepts, knowledge and skills; and for the children to study life in the past.


At Lowton Junior and Infant School, we aim for a high quality history curriculum which should inspire in pupils a curiosity and fascination about Britain’s past and that of the wider world noting connections, contrasts and trends over time. Our teaching equips pupils with knowledge about the history of Britain and how it has influenced and been influenced by the wider world. Our curriculum enables children to know and understand about significant aspects of the history of the wider world like ancient civilisations and empires. To understand changes in living memory and beyond living memory learn about the lives of significant people of the past, develop their chronological understanding, understand the methods of historical enquiry and be able to ask and answer questions, be able to communicate knowledge and understanding making reasoned judgements and explanations.

Children will have thoroughly enjoyed learning about history, therefore encouraging them to undertake new life experiences in the future.
