Sturton by Stow Primary School


Our History curriculum is structured so that there is opportunity for repetition and consolidation of key concepts and historical skills. We follow a two year rolling programme with planned progression meaning children are increasingly challenged as they move through the school. We use low stakes testing, for example quizzes or multiple-choice questions throughout a topic to aid children’s recall and learning and to demonstrate progress and understanding. This approach also helps children to question and choose what they may want to discover more about. We also send home Knowledge Organisers for children to learn key facts and vocabulary for each history topic. These inform fortnightly Microsoft Teams homework quizzes, which are used to consolidate learning and monitor progress. At SBS, history is taught for 3 of the 6 terms and is where possible linked to English texts and activities so that children are able to see an increased purpose to their learning and transfer skills between subjects.
