  3. History




History at Bishopsteignton aims to inspire pupils’ curiosity about the past in local, national and worldwide contexts. Our topics are informed by the national curriculum and are sensitive to our pupil’s interests, as well as the context of the local area, using the knowledge and expertise of our local community to enrich learning. Pupils will use empathy to consider what life was like for different people at different times. As our pupils develop their sense and understanding of chronology they will be able to make links between significant events, ask increasingly perceptive questions and retain invaluable knowledge and facts that will stay forever.
