Ashton Under Hill First School

Shaping Bright Futures Together





  • Understand the past and how it has impacted on our lives in order to inform our futures
  • Provide the knowledge, skills and understanding to appreciate our history and that of human creativity, endeavour and exploration through time
  • Learn through investigating primary and secondary sources of evidence
  • Develop understanding of and value own identify and heritage, including cultural roots, as citizens of Worcestershire, the UK and as members of a global society


At Ashton under Hill first school we follow a rolling programme of Topics which are adapted to cover the requirements of the National Curriculum.

The long term plan was developed in discussion with Bredon Hill Academy to ensure total coverage across all of KS2.

Each of the topics allow for a range of activities addressing chronological understanding, historical enquiry and evidence gathering and analysis.
