Upper Primary International History

Our Primary International History homeschooling course covers the requirements of the Key Stage 2 English National Curriculum over 4 years and has an international outlook covering history from around the world.

The International History course will fire your child’s curiosity about the past in the wider world. It plays an essential part in preparing children for living and working in today’s world. Throughout the course students will research, use 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 International History homeschooling course lays the foundations for children to transition smoothly to our Secondary International History courses.

Ava has been developing discipline and self-taught information enquiring skills throughout the months doing home school, which she never had in school. We came to realize that it is actually a good bonding opportunity to help her adjust to the studying method in the beginning. We are pleased to see her studying and preparing assignment without being asked of even in her free time. We find confidence and independence in her. Credits go to yourself and the tutors who have been helping her. I hope her interest in acquiring knowledge and the skills that she developed for herself will become her lifelong asset.
