All children are INSPIRED to develop their talents and love learning about all aspects of the History Curriculum
Children BELIEVE in themselves and their abilities;
Children DISCOVER and enjoy a wide range of experiences;
Children ACHIEVE their full potential in History;
Children BELONG to a School Community that is interested in its heritage and the past of Britain and the wider world;
At Ashburton Primary School, History education enables our children to develop their chronological understanding as well as building their knowledge of ancient civilizations from the past our significant periods of British history. They will be given the opportunity to ask questions and develop their own line of enquiry about these important subjects as well as learning about how these questions are answered by historians. There is a strong focus on understanding the influence of ancient civilisations and past eras on our life today.
