History at Heyford Park Free School is taught through specific topic lessons as well as through the use of a cross-curricular approach where teachers seek to develop knowledge and skills in other areas of the curriculum such as art, English and geography. During their time at Heyford Park Free School, children will develop a chronological understanding of British history from Stone Age to the present day as well as studying significant historical periods of world history (such as the Greeks and the Romans). Children are encouraged to explore what life was like at these different points in history but also to develop their critical thinking skills by questioning the reliability of sources and evidence.
