Our overarching vision at South Petherwin School is 'Learning Today to Change Tomorrow'.  What better subject to deliver this aim than History!  At South Petherwin School, we believe that high-quality history lessons inspire children to want to know more about the past, to think as historians and to recognise the way history has shaped our lives today.  History is a Our lessons ensure our children understand Britain's past and the wider world.  We aim to inspire children to investigate and interpret the past, giving them opportunities to do this. 


The History curriculum at South Petherwin uses the local area which enables children to develop a deeper understanding of local history as well as the wider world.  Our topics are informed by the National Curriculum, children's interests and our local area.  By linking learning to a range of topics, children have opportunities to investigate, communicate and interpret the past, understand chronology, build an overview of Britain's past a wel as that of the wider world.
