History at The Vineyard provides our children with a curious awareness of Britain’s past and that of the wider world.
Through our carefully constructed curriculum, a Vineyard historian learns to:
speak like a historian, using common words and phrases linked to the passing and measuring of time
build a chronological timeline in their minds, especially from the Stone Age up to 1066
develop a broader understanding of the past to give context to key events in history
In history, we have six themes that are continuously built upon throughout our learning journey. Most units focus on world history, British history or local history. They will then compare: lifestyles and beliefs, power, invasion, transport and legacies.
