By the end of key stage 1, children are expected to know, apply and understand the skills and processes specified in the programme of study. Children should understand the chronology of events and use specific vocabulary. Children’s natural curiosity should be harnessed to research the past and questioning skills should be developed and honed. Key Stage 1 follows the DFE programmes of study.
In Key Stage 1 children learn about:
changes within living memory. Where appropriate, these should be used to reveal aspects of change in national life
events beyond living memory that are significant nationally or globally
the lives of significant individuals in the past who have contributed to national and international achievements. Some should be used to compare aspects of life in different periods
significant historical events, people and places in their own locality.
