East Preston Infant School



At East Preston Infant School we aim for the children to become curious about the past, to think critically and ask perceptive questions to further their understanding.


Our pupils develop their early history skills and a curiosity about historical events by exploring artefacts and asking and answering questions, using a range of resources to observe and to discuss what they have seen. Half-termly units support children’s understanding of local history and key historical figures and events and are enriched through first hand experiences such as enactment days and workshops.

Intended Impact

Through History, our children will:

  • perceive history as exciting, engaging and valuable, so that they can develop the skills to ask questions and develop a sense of chronology
  • identify similarities and differences between ways of life and different periods
  • know and understand key features of historical events
  • understand some of the ways in which we can find out about the past
  • develop an awareness of people’s lives and how this contrasts with today
  • use vocabulary related to historical terms
