St Wilfrid's Catholic Primary School Ripon


History at St. Wilfrid's Primary School aims to ensure that our children will leave school with a secure understanding of the chronology of British history and that of the wider world. Through our topics, we aim to provide interesting and exciting historical experiences which promote historical thinking; developing an appreciation of the past and ensuring children become analytical thinkers by evaluating a range of primary and secondary sources. A class text may also be used to enhance the enjoyment and understanding of the history being studied. 

A question focused approach will encourage our children to ask questions, evaluate evidence, scrutinise arguments and develop their own judgement of historical periods. Our curriculum has been carefully planned and structured so there is a clear progression of knowledge, skills and understanding.
