Pupils to study Churchill in overhaul of history curriculum

The revised school curriculum for 2014 released this week states Winston Churchill will be restored to history lessons as part of a major overhaul of the curriculum designed to equip children with an understanding of Britain’s “island story”.

Schoolchildren will be taught a broad chronology of British history starting with the Stone Age and taking in the development of the World Wide Web by Sir Tim Berners-Lee.

A new draft of the curriculum – for five-to 14-year-olds in England – covers the Romans, Vikings, Magna Carta, the Reformation, the Civil War, development of the Empire, the Napoleonic Wars, Industrial Revolution, the world wars and creation of the NHS.

Pupils will be expected to study up to 1066 at primary school and the Norman Conquest onwards during secondary education.

Ministers insist the back-to-basics curriculum – to be taught from September 2014 – will equip children with the core knowledge they need to proceed on to further study and the workplace.
