History is for all children from junior infants to sixth class. The curriculum supports children to develop basic skills as an historian through a knowledge and understanding of people, events and developments in the past.
The curriculum is presented in two sections:
Myself and my family
Early people and ancient stories
Life, society, work and culture in the past
Eras of change and conflict
Politics, conflict and society
Continuity and change over time.
The current curriculum was introduced as part of the Primary School Curriculum (1999).
