At Kilmorie we aim for History to inspire children’s curiosity about the past, enabling pupils to weigh evidence, think critically, develop perspective and judgement, ask perceptive questions and sift arguments. Through the teaching of History, we endeavour to teach children to understand the process of change, the diversity of societies, the relationships between different groups, the complexity of people’s lives as well as their own identity and the challenges of their time.
Kilmorie children will have the knowledge and the confidence to be able to interpret, understand and discuss the past, making links between periods of history. Able to question and challenge the world around them, and to use historical vocabulary when talking about periods of history. As historians, they will have a curiosity to find out about the past and will understand the responsibility we have as global citizens to shape and impact the world
