At Temple Grove Academy, our primary school history curriculum is designed with a clear intent to foster a deep understanding and appreciation of the past. Our aim is to inspire curiosity, critical thinking, and a sense of connection to the broader narrative of human history. We believe that a well-rounded historical education lays the foundation for informed citizenship, empathy, and cultural awareness.

Key Intentions:

  1. Engaging Curriculum: Develop a history curriculum that captivates students’ interest and curiosity, making history an exciting and relevant subject.
  2. Key Historical Concepts: Ensure students grasp key historical concepts, such as chronology, cause and effect, change and continuity, and historical significance.
  3. Inclusive Perspectives: Promote an inclusive approach to history, acknowledging diverse voices and perspectives to provide a well-rounded understanding of the past.
  4. Skills Development: Focus on the development of historical skills, including critical analysis, source evaluation, and effective communication of historical knowledge.


We have chosen to partner with Kapow to enhance our history curriculum implementation. Kapow provides a comprehensive platform that aligns with our teaching philosophy and facilitates dynamic, interactive, and immersive history lessons.

Key Implementations:

  1. Resource Accessibility: Utilise Kapow’s extensive library of primary school history resources to create engaging lessons that cater to different learning styles.
  2. Interactive Activities: Incorporate Kapow’s interactive activities, games, and multimedia resources to make history lessons more engaging and memorable.
  3. Progress Tracking: Use Kapow’s tools for tracking student progress and understanding, allowing for targeted interventions and personalised support.
  4. Professional Development: Encourage our educators to participate in Kapow’s professional development opportunities to enhance their teaching skills and stay updated on best practices in history education.


We envision a positive impact on our students, fostering a genuine love for history, a strong foundation of historical knowledge, and the development of critical thinking skills. The impact of our history curriculum, supported by Kapow, will be measured through student engagement, assessment outcomes, and the development of a lifelong interest in exploring the richness of the past.

Key Areas of Impact:

  1. Student Engagement: Measure increased interest, participation, and enthusiasm for history lessons.
  2. Assessment Outcomes: Assess improvements in historical knowledge, skills, and understanding through formative and summative assessments.
  3. Lifelong Interest: Track students’ continued interest in history beyond the classroom, reflected in reading choices, extra-curricular activities, and discussions.

By integrating Kapow into our history curriculum, we aim to create an impactful and enriching educational experience that equips our students with a lifelong passion for history and a solid foundation for future learning.
