Curriculum Intent


At Ingram Road Primary School, we will help all children to develop an understanding of time, place, people and events through the effective teaching and learning of the knowledge skills and understanding of history. Our aim is to ignite a curiosity to learn about the past that will help children understand who they are and how their environment and the world has changed over time. We have a Topic based approach and make links to other subjects where appropriate. The topics have been carefully selected so that there are opportunities to explore ideas in depth, revisit and expand upon previous learning and make links between subjects. The topics are built around planned practical learning opportunities such as field work, museum visits and workshops that enrich children’s learning further. We take full advantage of our location in Leeds through curriculum topics that explore the richness of Leeds past and present.
