Manor’s history curriculum enables children to learn about the past of Britain and the rest of the world, setting it into a global context and linking it to current situations, issues and challenges across the world. It is broadened by visits to museums and expert visitors to school to help bring the history to life. Children develop the knowledge, skills and vocabulary to be curious about the past, and to debate confidently with each other. The school threads are interwoven through these units of work.


At Manor, we  support pupils to gain a coherent knowledge and understanding of Britain’s past and that of the wider world. We hope to inspire pupils’ curiosity to know more about the human past. We give children the opportunity to: ask perceptive questions, think critically, weigh evidence, sift arguments, and develop perspective and judgement. Our children learn to understand the complexity of people’s lives, the process of change, the diversity of societies and relationships between different groups, as well as their own identity and the challenges of their time. Lessons focus on skill based teaching.
