History Intent

At Danesholme Infant Academy 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 and EYFS Framework (Understanding of the world – People and Communities); providing a broad, balanced and differentiated curriculum that also encompasses the British Values. We ensure that historical concepts, knowledge and skills progress from Nursery to Year 2 enabling the children to get curious about the past of Britain and the wider world. At Danesholme Infant Academy, we aim for a high-quality history curriculum which teaches our pupils about changes in living memory and events beyond living memory that are significant nationally and globally. Our teaching equips pupils with knowledge about the lives of significant individuals in the past who have contributed to national and international achievements and significant historical events, people and places in our own locality.
