History in S.M.I.T.H
Our History curriculum at provides our children with a broad and balanced understanding of History. We aim to inspire, motivate and engage all children throughout the school and inspire them to be curious about the past.
We are passionate about children learning about a range of topics and understanding world history as well as British and local history. We want children to appreciate different viewpoints on historical events and to consider the reasons different people may have different points of view and respect them.
