History at Brigg Primary is key to help children build up a clear, chronological understanding of the past of Britain and the wider world. Our teaching inspires children’s curiosity to know more about the past and equips them to ask perceptive questions, think critically, look at evidence and develop perspective judgements. As children develop their understanding through school of the complexity of people’s lives from the past, they progress further by building their own understanding of the diversity in societies, respect for these and relationships between different groups. Their progression through school builds their identity and creates for them an understanding of the past, equipping them with the wisdom and determination to face challenges in their lives.

Making a difference and self-belief are key to our History learning at Brigg Primary. Throughout, our children are exposed to a range of exciting and relevant themes enhancing their skills as Historians further.  A clear understanding of historical concepts, including continuity and change, cause and consequence, similarity, difference and significance, are also established within our these.

Throughout school we learn about Brigg and children develop a greater understanding of their homes, communities and the wider world. We want children to enjoy and love learning about history through experiences in the classroom, use of fieldwork and educational visits.
