History at Riverside School aims to equip children with the historical skills needed to find out about any period in the past, for example, by examining evidence critically and learning about the causes and consequences of events.

Children learn to use a variety of historical sources, including pictures, photos, documents and artefacts and to present what they find out in different ways. We aim to bring history alive in many different ways. For example, bringing in visitors, going on trips, role play and theme days.

We foster children’s growing sense of chronology, helping them to place the particular periods they study within a historical time frame.

At Riverside , our History Curriculum intent and implementation looks like this:
