History at Orchard Academy
History is a subject where we really encourage children to use their learning muscles, especially their curiosity muscle.
We want to help children become curious about the past and ask lots of questions to help them explore what the past was like. Our history units are structured in a way which builds chronology and helps children secure a good understanding of the changes over time. Our lessons are taught weekly and we include a retrieval quiz at the start of each lesson to help children recall key historical information, dates and events throughout history.
