About our school

History

At Castleton, Glaisdale and Lealholm, we bring history to life through our enquiry topic by providing good quality first teaching, organising well-planned excursions and sourcing visitors that inspire our children. 

Each lesson starts with a brief review of prior learning in order to scaffold recall. 

Our four-year rolling programme has been designed to ensure that all areas of History are covered and are taught through an enquiry-based approach.   Where possible, lessons will link directly to the current enquiry question. Where this isn’t possible, History will be taught discretely. This helps children to develop their skills further, as well as enhancing their knowledge.  

By the time our children leave primary education, we want them to have a natural curiosity about the past, understand how the past shapes the present and have the skills needed to examine a variety of sources.
