Through high quality teaching and learning of History, Penryn Primary Academy's intent is to:
- Inspire children's curiosity, encouraging them to ask critical questions, enabling them to understand how the past has helped to shape the present state of Britain and understand how it has been influenced by the wider world.
- Develop children’s knowledge of past civilisations and the expansion of these civilisations and empires.
- Introduce children to historical enquiry and the ability to formulate and research questions using a variety of sources.
- Help children to develop a sense of chronology.
