GSO Test


Knowledge and understanding

At Willowpark, we aim for a high quality history curriculum which will inspire in pupils a curiosity and interest in Britain's past and that of the wider world. Our curriculum and teaching will equip learners with knowledge and understanding about significant aspects of history, such as ancient civilizations and empires, lives of significant people in the past and significant events in the history of Britain and how our country has influenced and been influenced by the wider world. 

Local History is also built into our two year rolling curriculum programme. Children will learn about a local study or event that is relevant to Oldham. This will enable the children to experience what it would have been like to live in the past and how that differs from their lives now.  By learning about the lives and significant events of local people, children will gain a greater understanding of how their locality has been shaped over time. 


Children will learn and be able to apply skills of:

Historical enquiry



Historical communication 

Historical concepts
