At Moggerhanger Primary school, our History curriculum provides our pupils with rich learning experiences which help to create links in learning across many other aspects of our school curriculum, particularly in English writing.

Our History Curriculum is derived from a number of sources, including Plan Bee, PKC and Twinkl. We have carefully selected units that enable our big ideas to be reflected in our learning journey, enabling pupils to understand changes in time and place through these golden thread concepts. Our History curriculum covers all aspects of the National Curriculum (2014) with vocabulary, knowledge and skills threaded throughout.
