Our Vision for History


At Fleet Infant School we want all of our children to have an understanding of the past. It is important that children see how the past can affect and change their future. Our aim is to deliver high-quality, engaging History lessons which encourage enquiry, chronological understanding as well as supporting children in using historical sources to make decisions about the past. At our school, we want our children to be passionate about history.

Our History Curriculum covers a range of topics that are inspiring and motivate children to use their enquiry and  thinking skills. Where possible, we aim to make links between their history learning across the whole curriculum. For example, when studying the Great Fire of London, children are given links to English, Geography, Science and DT to give the topic more context. Each unit is planned using a six step approach where the children are given opportunities to broaden their knowledge and skills so that they know how to unpick history before they leave Key Stage 1.

Our learning in action!

Year 2 History Autumn Term.

This term, Year 2 have looked at The Great Fire of London. There was a focus on the chronology of it and also thinking about the causes and consequences of the fire itself. We were lucky to have a theatre company come in and re-enact the history of it with us! The children thoroughly enjoyed this unit and continue to talk about it daily!
