Progression of Skills

The way we have designed our curriculum and deliver new topics is established in relation to periods of history the children have already covered. Children use timelines to develop chronological awareness and begin to make links between topics and events in order to notice patterns. The skills taught at Blakehill allow children to develop further as historians and continue to build on skills previously taught.
