Curriculum Intent History:

History is the past, present and future of who we are, what we are and what we become. Pupils will learn about the story of human experiences, which will develop understanding of their place in the world on a local, national and international level. They develop a chronological overview that focuses on key concepts (cause and consequence, change and continuity, significance and interpretation) that enables them to make connections, debate, and become confident and questioning individuals. At Liskeard School our intent is to create inquisitive students through mastery of History, enhancing cultural capital in relation to diverse past societies; helping students to learn from the past to shape a better future.
