At Norwood we will be teaching our children the new History curriculum through topic based work.

Children will be taught about how the world has changed throughout living memory and use their experiences to suggest how things have changed.

We will study significant events that happened beyond living memory that are significant on a national and global scale. These things will be taught through focussed topic themes.

Within topics, children will be taught about significant individuals who have contributed achievements on a national and international level. This will also be used to compare aspects of life in different time periods.

There will be a focus on significant events, people and places from our local area, which will be taught throughout the curriculum.

As children progress through the school, they will look at how Britain changed from the Stone Age to the Iron Age.

Our topic curriculum will allow a rounded coverage of all of the aspects of History.
