History

 Through the Cornerstones history curriculum, the staff at St Joseph’s make full use of resources within the immediate and wider local area enabling children to develop a deep understanding of the rich history of their locality. In line with the national curriculum 2014, our curriculum aims to ensure that all pupils: gain a coherent knowledge and understanding of Britain’s past and that of the wider world which helps to stimulate pupils’ curiosity to know more about the past; are encouraged to ask perceptive questions, think critically, weigh evidence, sift arguments, and develop perspective and judgement; begin to understand the complexity of people’s lives, the process of change, the diversity of societies and relationships between different groups, as well as their own identity and the challenges of their time.
