The more you know about the past, the better prepared you are for the future!


At Cranborne we want every child to share our passion for history and develop their sense of curiosity about the past. We help children to gain an excellent knowledge and understanding of people and events from a range of historical periods. They will develop their knowledge of chronology and consider how things change over time.

History develops the children’s ability to think critically about events and communicate ideas in different ways. It develops the ability to think, reflect, debate, discuss and evaluate the past.

We aim to learn lessons for our own futures by thinking carefully about the consequences of actions in the past.


Below are the history topics we cover at Cranborne:
