History - Our Vision
The aim of history teaching at Filby Primary School is to stimulate the children’s interest and understanding about the lives of people who lived in the past, at a local level, in Britain and in the wider world. We teach children a sense of chronology, and through this they develop a sense of identity and a cultural understanding, based on their historical heritage. They learn to respect their own and other people’s cultures in modern, multicultural Britain. By considering how people lived in the past, they are better able to make responsible life choices for themselves. In our school history makes a significant contribution to citizenship education by teaching about how Britain developed as a democratic, inclusive society. We teach children to understand how events in the past have influenced our lives today; we also support them to ask perceptive questions, think critically, weigh evidence, sift arguments, and develop perspective and judgement and, by so doing help to develop them into caring and aspirational world citizens.
