At Oasis Academy Watermead, we aim to foster the children’s interest and understanding about the life of people who lived in the past. We will ensure that we provide meaningful experiences to bring history to life. Children will have a sense of chronology and an identity based on their historical heritage locally, nationally and globally. Children will learn to value their own and other people’s cultures in modern multicultural Britain. Children will be prepared to make their own life choices in today’s world and gain an understanding how Britain has developed as a democratic society. The children will think like historians and understand how events in in the past have influenced our lives today.
