History at St Nicholas Primary school aims to provide pupils with a thorough understanding of the past of both Britain and the wider world, ensuring that children are able to think critically when examining evidence and can develop their own opinions, which they can then back up with their historical knowledge.

History is taught through class projects which encompass a broad range of foundation subjects. Some projects are more heavily focused on history, while others have lessons that are linked to or focused on specific national curriculum objectives. The project approach allows teaching of history to be creative and engaging while also embedding a cross curricular approach to teaching.
