History at Hatfield

Our History curriculum at Hatfield aims to provide pupils with a solid understanding of historical events through time. Pupils study historical periods ranging from the Stone Age through to the American Civil War, along with looking at a wide range of countries and historical themes.

Pupils also apply critical thinking skills and project based work to the History curriculum and take part in group based learning to develop a range of different skills.
