History at Kingsacre


Past and Present -  People, Culture and Communities.

History is encompassed in the EYFS through ‘Understanding of the World’, which includes learning about People, Cultures and Communities, Past and Present. At Kingsacre, children begin and continue to develop an understanding of history through topic-based learning. We offer experiences including texts and events that deepen their understanding and inspire inquiry.

Our children are taught to talk about past and present events in their own lives and in the lives of family members. They know that other children don’t always enjoy the same things, and are sensitive to this. They know about similarities and differences between themselves and others, and among families, communities and traditions.

The children have a learning environment enriched with topic-based resources to enhance their curiosity and to incorporate into their imaginative play. In addition, we encourage children to reflect on their own special events and express their own past experiences. By engaging with the objects and environments that they see, teachers encourage children to explore, question and develop curiosity about the history surrounding them and how this relates to them and their families.

At Kingsacre our children are encouraged to answer ‘how’ and ‘why’ questions about their experiences and in response to stories or events and express themselves effectively, showing awareness of listeners’ needs. They use past, present and future forms accurately when talking about events that have happened or are to happen in the future. They develop their own narratives and explanations by connecting ideas or events.
