At New Cangle we support all pupils to become historians by developing skills, knowledge, curiosity and a depth of understanding in history.
We provide a history curriculum based around the Cornerstones Curriculum, For more details about the Cornerstones Curriculum, please see Curriculum
In school, we have a range of resources to support teaching and learning of history including: replica artefacts and books.
To link historical events with real-life experiences, pupils visit local and national historical places of interest. Other ‘memorable experiences’ include school-based, hands-on educational workshops and re-enactments.
Further details of our history curriculum can be found in the document: History Curriculum Map 2020-2021

Miss East is keen to support children with developing a chronologically secure knowledge and understanding of British, local and world history, especially the changes brought about by significant events and the contributions of significant individuals.
