Children learn about people’s lives and lifestyles. They find out about significant men, women and children and events from the recent and more distant past, including those from both Britain and the wider world. They listen and respond to stories and use sources of information to help them ask and answer questions. They learn how the past is different from the present. They learn to understand the concept of chronology, interpretation and the passing of time. The children will learn about local, regional, national and international history; between cultural, economic, military, political, religious and social history; and between short- and long-term timescales.
