S

Schema building

Prior learning is continually referred to, so pupils can build upon existing and make new schemas in order to secure skills and knowledge in their long term memory. 

History INTENT

Our history will inspire pupils’ curiosity to know more about the past in order to shape their future and equip the children to ask perceptive questions, think critically, analyse evidence. It will help pupils to understand the process of change, the diversity of societies as well as their own identity and the challenges of their time.

EYFS INTENT

 

What makes them the same and different to others, how we share and work together. Recalling and sharing significant times and events in their own personal history. Children talk about past and present events in their own lives and in the lives of family members. They know that other children don’t always enjoy the same things, and are sensitive to this. They know about similarities and differences between themselves and others, and among families, communities and traditions. (Understanding the World: People and Communities – ELG)
