History

At English Martyrs we follow the Primary National Curriculum for History in England.

History is the study of evidence about the past and plays an essential part in preparing us for living and working in a contemporary world. It gives us a sense of identity, set within our social, political, cultural and economic relationships.

The National Curriculum states that “A high-quality history education will help pupils gain a coherent knowledge and understanding of Britain’s past and that of the wider world. It should inspire pupils’ curiosity to know more about the past.” 

Here are a few useful websites to support the teaching of History:
