History has a very high status at Pye Bank and we are very proud that our History curriculum has been awarded the Historical Association Gold Quality Mark. We have a clear progression of skills and knowledge which is designed to build on current learning year on year. By the end of Year 6, pupils will have a chronological understanding of British history from the Stone Age to the present day. We also place great importance on local history and this is embedded wherever possible in all our British history topics. 
Pupils are taught to make comparisons and identify connections between different time periods and their own lives. They also study world history, such as the ancient civilizations of Greece and the Egyptians.  Our curriculum enables pupils to work as historians to interpret and evaluate evidence and reach conclusions about history. This is done through enrichment opportunities, looking at artefacts and understanding primary and secondary sources.  
Pupils in our school enjoy history; our Quality Mark feedback stated that “The children could see the worth in studying history and they are enthusiastic and positive about the subject.”
