At Hurst Drive Primary School, history is taught on rotation with other foundation subjects. It is delivered in Years 1-6 as a 2-3 week block of learning, using a PlanBee scheme of work which is adapted to meet the needs of the children to ensure they are exposed to an engaging, meaningful curriculum. In Reception, history is taught as part of Understanding the World.


As part of their learning in history, the children experience a range of opportunities to delve into the wonders of the past. They will learn about all kinds of significant historical events and figures.
