At Southmead, history skills and objectives are taught through cross curricular topics focusing on providing children with a secure chronological knowledge of some key historical events at a local, national and global level.  An enquiries based approach is taken enabling children to become curious and identify areas and questions that they would like to research and find answers to.  Skills are taught and revisited to encourage independent learning and children are encouraged to ask questions, think critically and weigh evidence. Trips and visitors are used to provide a starting point for learning or to develop and further understanding as well as inspire the children to find out more.
