Our History Intent:


History is all around us. It shapes who we are and what we do. If we want to know why our world is the way it is today, we must look to history for the answers. We want to inspire a hunger in our children to know about the past, for them to be curious, imaginative and creative as they learn. We want both the knowledge and skills our children learn to shape them as world citizens, who will make an active contribution to society. This is why at Our Lady of Lincoln, our History curriculum is underpinned by our Curriculum Aims and Drivers.


We believe our children should learn about the history of the wider world, but also about the past in their own community and how this may have influenced Lincoln today. We want them to experience and appreciate the richness of the history all around them. We want them to know the best that has been thought, said and achieved throughout History while acknowledging that mistakes have also been
made and how we could learn from these.
