St Francis Catholic Primary School a Voluntary Academy

Together we are exploring our special gifts; Together we are growing towards God.


A people without a knowledge of their past history, origin and culture is like a tree without roots - Marcus Garvey


At St Francis , our history curriculum aims to inspire our pupils curiosity and increase their knowledge about the past. Our history curriculum aims to equip the children in each year group with historical facts, whilst also providing them with hands on, historical experiences . These include hook days and wow days that introduce a history topic or celebrate the learning. We want the children immersed in the subject and increasing pupil engagement and enjoyment. Our history curriculum aims to link school visits to include museums to aid children’s understanding about the past.
