“We are not makers of history, we are made by history.”

What do we believe at Badger Hill?
We believe a high-quality history education will help pupils gain a coherent knowledge and understanding of Britain’s past and that of the wider world. It should inspire pupils’ curiosity to know more about the past. Teaching should equip pupils to ask perceptive questions, think critically, weigh evidence, sift arguments, and develop perspective and judgement. History helps pupils to understand the complexity of people’s lives, the process of change, the diversity of societies and relationships between different groups, as well as their own identity and the challenges of their time.
How do we achieve in History at Badger Hill?
We offer children many opportunities to study great civilisations, key historical events and people but first and foremost to visit historical places. This offers children hands on experiences to question and delve deeper into the past. We allow children to build up a time line of chronological events through the time in school. Achievement in history comes in many forms including written work, art work and also debates and discussion.
We create lots of opportunities to enjoy and share our History skills and learning
Children celebrate their learning in history by demonstrating their understanding in many shapes and forms. This can be shared events across school, work displayed in books and visits to historical places. Where possible we enjoy celebrating this with parents and our local community!
