History doesn't change the past, but it is likely to change the future.


What we say about History at Coxhoe Primary School...

Subject Ambassadors - Zac and Lexi-Anne

I wanted to be a subject ambassador of history because I am really passionate about the subject. In my spare time, I like to read books and watch films about different events in history and I am really knowledgable. I have lots of ideas about how to improve history in our school.


 "Black History Month has taught me so many new things and I have learnt so much about why equality is important" - Zac.

"I love learning about Neil Armstrong and I find it very interesting that he went to the moon." - Rosie.

"I cannot believe that Rosa Parks went through such an awful time just because of the colour of her skin!" - Edie.

Curriculum Intent

The intent of history teaching at Coxhoe Primary School is to stimulate the children’s interest and understanding about the life of people who lived in the past.

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. Thus, they learn to value their own and other people’s cultures in modern multicultural Britain and, by considering how people lived in the past, they are better able to make their own life choices today.

In our school, history makes a significant contribution to citizenship education by teaching about how Britain developed as a democratic society.

We teach children to understand how events in the past have influenced our lives today; we also teach them to investigate these past events and, by so doing, to develop the skills of enquiry, analysis, interpretation and problem-solving.
