‘Historical knowledge and understanding enables children to make connections, comparisons and note trends over time.’ At HBJS, we aim to ensure children enjoy learning about cultures and civilisations from the past through a fun, engaging and high quality History education which inspires children’s curiosity to find out more about the past. In doing so, we aspire for the children to understand how people’s lives have been shaped by key events and people from our past.


Our History lessons are delivered through topic lessons which lend themselves to a cross-curricular approach to learning. This enables children to gather a full, deep and meaningful understanding of the period they are studying. Year groups learn about two major historical periods over the course of each year. (Year 6 will be learning about the Ancient Greeks from next year.)
