At St. Margaret’s at Troy Town, our History Curriculum aims to stimulate children’s curiosity and interest with the past. We hope to inspire the historian inside every child through challenging, engaging and practical learning so that children will not only view history as looking back to past events, but to use their understanding and knowledge to help them understand the world today and their place in it.
Throughout their years at SMATT, pupils will explore a variety of historical periods and develop the skills of enquiry, investigation and evaluation. They will build a sense of chronology, gain knowledge of key events from the past, ask and answer questions and develop appropriate use of historical vocabulary. Pupils consider connections, contrasts and trends over time and discover Rochester’s place in History. From the Stone Age, to the Romans, to the Vikings, to Ancient Greece; we aim to inspire children with curiosity about our past and aim to link the ‘then’ with the ‘now’.
