St Margaret Mary's Catholic Infant School

  1. Curriculum
  2. History




The History curriculum is delivered through an engaging creative curriculum approach of Topic or project based learning. In St. Margaret Mary’s we want all children to be aware of their own history and of the changes within their own lives and that of beyond their living memory. We ensure that we inspire our pupils’ curiosity to know more about the past and of the lives of significant individuals.


In St. Margaret Mary’s, History is delivered through ‘The Voyagers’ scheme of work which allows children to learn and progress through the knowledge and skills in a variety of units whilst ensuring National Curriculum objectives are fully met. To ensure planning for progression, specific units within the scheme are designated to Year One and Year Two, with some additional discrete History lessons, such as Remembrance Day.


Please see our progression map, to find out more about how children progression in their learning from nursery through to Year 2.
