Curriculum Intent


At Ingram Road Primary School, we will help all children to develop an understanding of time, place, people and events through the effective teaching and learning of the knowledge skills and understanding of history. Our aim is to ignite a curiosity to learn about the past that will help children understand who they are and how their environment and the world has changed over time. We have a Topic based approach and make links to other subjects where appropriate. Our starting point is the National Curriculum and then we adapt our topics by considering the interests and locality of the children. The topics have been carefully selected so that there are opportunities to explore ideas in depth, revisit and expand upon previous learning and make links between subjects. The topics are built around planned practical learning opportunities such as field work, museum visits and workshops that enrich children’s learning further. We take full advantage of our location in Leeds through curriculum topics that explore the richness of Leeds past and present.

Black History Month: Wc 17/10/22


Black History Month is observed every October in Britain. It is an opportunity to celebrate the outstanding contributions that Black people have made to British society, whether that be today or historically.
Black History Month provides great opportunities to highlight key moments in Black British history. It is important to celebrate the contributions of everyone to our society and support the multiculturalism and diversity that helps shape our communities. 

This year we will focus on local, black, significant individuals. It is important that the children learn about black individuals, but this year our big focus will be on black history in Leeds and Yorkshire.

Knowledge Organisers.

What are knowledge organisers?

Knowlege orgnisers act as a planning tool, setting out all of the core, foundational facts that must be learnt to understand and master a particular topic. 

We find them a useful assessment tool, as we will refer back to the knowledge organsier throughout the topic. 

Pupils will review, revise and quiz themselves using their knowledge organisers.


Here are the current knowledge organisers that we are using in school:
