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.

Black History Month


Black History Month is observed every October in Britain. It is an opportunity to celebrate the outstanding contributions that Black people have made to British society, whether that be today or historically.
Black History Month provides great opportunities to highlight key moments in Black British history. It is important to celebrate the contributions of everyone to our society and support the multiculturalism and diversity that helps shape our communities. 

This year we will focus on local, black, significant individuals. It is important that the children learn about black individuals, but this year our big focus will be on black history in Leeds and Yorkshire. 

Come back for updates of what the children get up to!
