At Key Stage 2, learners build on the skills, knowledge and understanding acquired during the Foundation Phase. They have experiences that make history enjoyable, interesting and significant. They develop their curiosity about the past, the characteristics of different periods, from early times to the present, and the ways in which they are different from each other and from the present. They learn by enquiry about the ways of life of different people in these periods of history, drawing on important developments, key events and notable people in their locality, Wales and Britain. They engage in stimulating and focused historical enquiry using a wide range of sources, including representations and interpretations of the past, and organise and communicate their skills, knowledge and understanding in an increasing variety of ways.
