At Underwood West Academy, the history curriculum develops children’s knowledge of historical periods, events and significant individuals. Children learn key facts and concepts alongside skills such as chronological understanding, analysis and evaluation of historical evidence, empathy with people from different eras and how to compare and contrast life in different periods. Each year group follows the same structure throughout each academic year: autumn term sees a focus on local history, spring term looks at British history and summer term moves to an aspect of global history. This mirrors the structure of the geography curriculum, enhancing the links between these two humanities subjects.
Each Unit is supported by a knowledge organiser which details the key facts, vocabulary and skills for each unit. Please scroll down to access these.
