Upper Primary History

The benefits of studying Primary History

Our Primary History homeschooling course covers the requirements of the Key Stage 2 English National Curriculum over 4 years.

History will fire your child’s curiosity about the past in Britain and the wider world. It plays an essential part in preparing children for living and working in today’s world. Throughout the course they will research, sift through evidence, and argue for their point of view – all skills that are valued in adult life.

This course will help your child to:

  • Gain an understanding of events, places and people in different times and environments.
  • Develop an interest in the past and an appreciation of human achievements and aspirations.
  • Understand how the past was different, how people of other times and places had different values and attitudes.
  • Develop the skills to interpret primary and secondary source material.
  • Distinguish between historical facts and their interpretation.

Once completed, our Primary History homeschooling course lays the foundations for children to transition smoothly to our Secondary History course.

Thank you so much for your help this year. We have been very happy with the progress Roxanne has made. She has really grown in confidence. It’s hard to believe that when Roxanne started the course she had never written more than a paragraph in her own language, let alone English. Although the creative writing was a struggle to begin with she really took to this aspect of the course, encouraged by her Tutor’s comments. The time travelling allowed her to become an avid reader which helped her imagination blossom. We hope Roxanne will continue to write her stories.
