At Wybunbury Delves we aim to 'light the spark for a love of learning and of life' and believe History is a subject which offers the very best opportunities to achieve this. We adapt the SPARK approach to learning to foster and maintain children's curiosity in the world around them.
Why do we teach History?
Our past is of crucial importance because we cannot know who we are today without knowing where we came from yesterday; History allows us to do this. At Wybunbury Delves, we want our children to develop a curiosity about the past which will allow them to find out who they are as individuals, who they are as part of a society and who they are as part of the human race; a species that has lived and evolved on planet Earth for thousands of years.
We want our children to understand that History is all about people, cultures and places of the past, how we know about them and what we can learn from them. Our children will be given the opportunity to develop a coherent knowledge and understanding of Britain's past and that of the wider world. At Wybunbury, children gain the skills they need to effectively inquire about the past and how it has shaped modern Britain. They are taught to ask perceptive questions, think critically, weigh evidence, sift arguments and develop perspective and judgement.
