All of the history units of work are planned around an overarching skills and knowledge framework. This ensures aspects of each subject make firm horizontal and progressive curriculum links between significant elements of the history curriculum. For example, the concepts of hierarchy and power are first explored in Magnificent Monarchs in Year 2. In KS2, children then study how hierarchy and power develop and change from the earliest times in Britain and the wider world, through to the great World Wars of the 20th century.
The aspects of history that run throughout the history projects are set out in the diagram below:
