History Sequence of Knowledge

History Substantive Knowledge

Substantive knowledge in History is the specific and factual content of Understanding the World and the children forming a chronological understanding. An understanding of chronology and a range of historical vocabulary is taught through the historical topics, specific to each year group in EYFS, KS1 and KS2. Our OPA History Knowledge Progress Doc maps out that knowledge in all year groups.

History Disciplinary knowledge

Disciplinary knowledge in History is applied by exercising enquiry skills, making comparisons,  informed responses and questioning sources. Exercising enquiry skills, allows the children to integrate both substantive and disciplinary knowledge whilst understanding how the past has helped shape their identity today. Children’s knowledge of abstract concepts such as: empire, kings, settlements are mapped across all year groups.
