Lowerhouse Junior School

Inspiring a lifelong love for learning


History Statement of Intent


At Lowerhouse Junior school we want all of our pupils to have an understanding of the past and how history has and will continue to shape their future.  We want to develop children’s awareness of the past and allow them to begin to appreciate history in a chronological context. They will work on securing an understanding of British, local and world history. Children will look at connections and patterns over time and develop a good use of historical terms. There will also be a focus on different sources and how our knowledge of the past is shaped from them. Through high-quality history lessons we aim to encourage critical thinking, as well as helping the children to gain a sense of their own identity within a social, political, cultural and economic background. History at Lowerhouse engages children, sparks curiosity and helps to foster creativity through hands on activities, exploration, collaboration and discussion.  Throughout school we aim to ensure that children secure a coherent knowledge and understanding of Britain’s past and that of the wider world.
