“Bringing Learning to Life”



History Intent Statement


At Therfield First School, we believe that high quality history lessons inspire pupils’ curiosity. The schools own rich history, within the contexts of the local area, is a celebrated and inspiring feature of our curriculum. Pupils are encouraged to ask perceptive questions, think critically, weigh evidence, sift arguments and develop their own opinions and judgements.


Through a creative, multi-sensory curriculum, lessons are designed to bring history to life, immersing pupils in well thought out learning experiences. We believe that history lessons at Therfield First School allow pupils to understand the significance of the past and how it relates to our evolving future.
