Long term plans

At Westwood, we teach history in chronological order to allow children the opportunity to build on their knowledge as they move through different time periods in Key Stage 2.


All classrooms have a timeline which shows the time periods previously taught in school and teachers add the time periods currently being taught to their class timeline.


Throughout all of our history topics, we focus on religion, transport, food and housing whilst other history topics focus on more specific events, as can be seen on our Curriculum Snapshots tab. By teaching like this, we allow children to have the components from their prior learning in order for them to build and develop their understanding to learn the new content.
