As historians, children gain a coherent knowledge and understanding of Britain’s past and that of the wider world. We aim to inspire children’ curiosity to know more about the past. As historians children should ask perceptive questions, think critically, weigh evidence, sift arguments, and develop perspective and judgement. Historians should understand the complexity of people’s lives, the process of change, the diversity of societies and relationships between different groups, as well as their own identity and the challenges of their time.
