History

History Intent
 
At Foxhole Learning Academy, we are passionate that our history curriculum provides the children with the subject specific skills and cross curricular skills needed in order to move into the next year group and beyond; by turning the children into historians during lessons, they take ownership of their role, giving children the opportunity to understand how our world has developed. During history we encourage all of our children to be curious and inquisitive learners, and use enquiry led lessons to engage the childrens' sense of curiosity.
