As a study of the past and the past's legacies in the present, History is inescapable.

At Lion, our sequential approach to the curriculum really lends itself to teaching History chronologically, so that, from Years 1 to 6, children have a clear framework for organising their understanding of the past.

Along the way, our aim at every stage is to go above and beyond the basic learning expectations. We want to inspire children to think like historians, to work with evidence, argue for their own conclusions, and learn to distinguish between historical facts and the way people interpret them. Above all, pupils get to understand more about themselves as individuals and as members of society.

Digitised Lessons - end to end curriculum delivery support 

To access the thousands of digitised lessons we use a system called Miro.  Miro is a content-sharing platform that lets teachers make, edit, share and distribute lessons to pupils!


Curriculum maps bring the learning journey to life

What am I learning? How does it relate to what I learnt last year and to what I'm going to learn next year? Our learning pathways graphically set out the whole subject curriculum and bring the learning journey to life for every learner, in each year.


Assessment sheets for every lesson

For every lesson in every subject, the Lion Pathways Curriculum provides end-of-topic or end-of-module assessment sheets; we use these to capture both pupil and teacher feedback for that piece of work. By actively tracking each learner’s views in a consistent and systematic way, it ensures their voice is heard and recorded, a core part of every element of the teaching and learning cycle.
