Children’s historical learning in Key Stage One starts with the familiar: their own pasts and those of their families. As children’s learning travels further back in time.
In Key Stage Two, the story of Britain is interwoven with studies of ancient civilizations. Children explore concepts of migration, empire, civilization, continuity and change, cause and consequence, similarity, difference and significance.
