“History is who we are and why we are the way we are.”
History Curriculum at Padiham Green
At Padiham Green we aim to instil a love of history in our children by using enjoyable learning experiences to build an interest in, and curiosity about, the past.
With a curriculum bespoke to Padiham Green we teach children a sense of chronology, in order to develop a sense of identity and a cultural understanding based on their historical heritage. Many of our historical units relate to the history of Padiham and our local area within Lancashire. By studying history, we teach our children to think critically, justify using evidence and to thoroughly consider both sides of an issue before making a decision.
In today’s modern world, it is more important than ever to debate and consider information. Teaching history ensures our children understand the complexities of people, societies and change, enabling them to understand their identity within society. It shows them models of good and responsible citizenship; right and wrong, morals and ethics.
History’s true value lies in how we apply lessons from the past to our present and future ensuring our children embrace opportunities with enthusiasm and confidence.
