“The farther backward you can look, the farther forward you are likely to see.” Winston Churchill


Together, led by a passionate subject leader who encourages us to ‘Let our Light Shine’, we develop our understanding of God's world. We explore how it has been developed by fellow humans in the past and across the globe, and marvel at the wonders of this planet.

Our History curriculum is taught through our BOOKS approach allowing all our children to flourish in readiness for their next stage of learning.


What is History?

History can take the form of a tremendous story, a rolling narrative filled with great personalities and tales of turmoil and triumph. Each generation adds its own chapters to history while reinterpreting and finding new things in those chapters already written. History provides us with a sense of identity. By understanding where we have come from, we can better understand who we are. History provides a sense of context for our lives and our existence. It helps us understand the way things are and how we might approach the future. History teaches us what it means to be human, highlighting the great achievements and disastrous errors of the human race. History also teaches us through example, offering hints about how we can better organise and manage our societies for the benefit of all. 

Tarporley CE History Curriculum

Intent: What do we intend our pupils to learn?

At Tarporley CE we utilise the History scheme of work published by Kapow Primary. It is coherently planned and sequenced to embed knowledge and skills about local, British and world history. Our curriculum is taught with a focused chronologolgy to enable our pupils to understand history as a narrative. This allows our pupils to transfer new knowledge and build on what has previously been taught. Our history curriculum is knowledge, vocabulary and skills rich. We inspire our pupils curiosity to find out more about the past and ask perceptive questions, reporting their findings by drawing on skills from across the curriculum. Our pupils study a range of cultures and historical perspectives allowing them to understand the complexities of people’s lives, the diversity of society and relationships between different groups and enabling them to be respectful and tolerant of our similarities and differences.

Our pupils will leave Tarporley CE being able to explain how history fits together, how key events and people from one time period affect another and make detailed links across features of past societies and different historical periods.

Implementation: At Tarporley CE, knowledge is seen as an opportunity to acquiring more knowledge. Our history curriculum is designed to allow our pupils to develop their historical skills and vocabulary. Each key stage has a set of historical skills to ensure that our pupils are developing their skills as historians.


Our subject leader for History is Miss Helen Maddocks.
