History

History is the study of people in the past and events connected with them. It plays an important role in helping learners gain a greater understanding of the world in which they live.

North Road Academy ensures that the history curriculum is a balance between European and World History as well as Islamic history. The study of famous inventors and people who made great contributions that influence our lives today makes our curriculum diverse and relevant to the learners.


North Road Academy learners will:

  • Have a lasting interest in, and enjoyment of, learning about the past
  • Develop a sense of time (chronology), recognising how time is measured and that some things change and some things stay the same;
  • Investigate how and why events happen and how they may be linked;
  • Understand that people interpret the past differently and use different ways to present their ideas;
  • To encourage children to extend their thinking
  • Understanding how the past was different from the present
  • To understand the way hadith were collected and chains of narration
