At Reevy Hill, History is planned to provide pupils with a coherent knowledge and understanding of Britain’s past and that of the wider world by using a range of sources to ignite pupil’s curiosity and develop their understanding of chronology, ancient civilisations and past events.

Our History Curriculum is carefully designed so knowledge is considered and built upon from Early Years right through to Year 6. It is carefully planned and sequenced so every topic has a clear end point with specific knowledge and key concepts built upon throughout ensuring children know and remember more. We ensure that children’s knowledge and understanding of the past and chronology, as well as their questioning and research skills, is developed through using a range of primary and secondary sources, thinking critically and developing their own perspective and judgements.

We strive to help pupils understand the complexity of people’s lives, the process of change, the diversity of society and relationships between different groups, as well as their own identity. Pupils start by exploring their own past by reflecting on themselves as babies and understanding the changes they’ve been through before beginning to look at how the society around them has changed and past events that have influenced life today.




At Reevy Hill we have adapted our curriculum as we envision a Geography Curriculum that sparks a sense of wonder about the world, fostering global awareness, cultural and environmental understanding.


Through engaging lessons, we aspire to develop young minds that are not only knowledgeable about the world but also motivated to be responsible global citizens. Every lessons serves as a stepping stone in a carefully designed sequence that progresses logically, encouraging pupils to explore the dynamic relationship between people, place and environment. In addition to this, key geography skills like mapping are developed throughout school and help pupils to develop their understanding of 'place'.  Our approach involves building on prior knowledge, fostering critical thinking and incorporating hands-on experiences, creating a learning journey that unfolds progressively and prepares students for a broader appreciation of the world around them.
