History F-2

Course reserves to compliment the teaching of history from Foundation through to Year 2, as per the Victorian Curriculum.

Foundation to Yr 2 History

Personal and Community Histories

In Foundation to Level 2, students study personal, family and local history. Students learn about their own history and that of their family, including stories from different cultures and other parts of the world. As participants in their own history, students develop their knowledge and understanding of how the past is different from the present. Students also learn about continuity and change in family life by comparing the present with the past. They begin to explore the links, and the changes that occur, over time. Students explore, recognise and appreciate the history of their local area by examining remains of the past and considering why they should be preserved.

In this band, students will apply the following historical concepts and skills to the historical knowledge: sequencing chronology, using historical sources as evidence, identifying continuity and change, and determining historical significance.
