The children at Upland enjoy learning about the past in Britain and the wider world. History fires their curiosity and encourages children to ask questions and carry out research.

In Key Stage 1 children learn about different people’s lives and lifestyles. They find out about significant men, women, children and events from the more recent and distant past. They begin to develop a sense of chronology. They begin to recognise the reasons why people in the past acted as they did and identify some of the different ways in which the past is represented.

In Key Stage 2 develop their factual knowledge and understanding of the history of Britain and the wider world. They use this to describe past societies and historical periods. They learn about changes within and across the different periods. The topics enable the children to select and combine information from different sources.
