History provides pupils in Ysgol Y Gogarth with a means of exploring and understanding. Although a number of our pupils will experience difficulties in fully understanding the concepts or the skills involved in investigating history, this does not preclude them from the opportunity, the experience and enjoyment of studying the subject. The study of history in this form contributes to a broad and balanced curriculum at Ysgol Y Gogarth and the education of the ‘whole child’.
The aims of history education at Ysgol Y Gogarth are:-

  • to enable children to develop their knowledge and understanding of the world they live in now and how it has changed overtime
  • to promote positive attitudes and enthusiasm towards history, by fostering a sense of awe, wonder and enjoyment
  • to give the pupils as full a working knowledge of the history curriculum as their academic ability and ability to access the curriculum will permit
  • to provide a history curriculum that is broad, balanced, relevant and differentiated
  • to ensure the continuity and progressive development of history concepts, knowledge, skills and attitudes by means of careful, structured planning
