At Hasland Infant School we recognise the importance of children having an understanding of local, national and international history to enrich their knowledge of the world. Through our history curriculum we aim to support children to develop an enquiring mind and the ability to consider and debate the past through stories, research and exploring photographs and artefacts.
We aim to inspire children by teaching them about people and events that have had a significant impact on national or international achievements, for example Florence Nightingale or Neil Armstrong. At Hasland Infant School we want children to recognise that anyone can have an impact on society and inspire each child to be the best they can be. As historians the children will be supported to develop a chronological understanding of events in history which will enable them to make sense of new knowledge they acquire and where this fits into national and international events.
By the end of their time at Hasland Infant School we aim for each child to be a skilled historian. We expect that children will be able to access a range of sources, ask and answer questions about the past and represent what they know about the past in a range of ways. We aim for children to have a solid base of historical knowledge and a thirst for knowledge as they continue their history learning.

During our year 2 topic 'Chocolate' the children discovered that chocolate was first made by the Aztecs in 1325. We made Aztec huts and tried some of the first chocolate which was called 'Xocotal'.
