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:

    1. Skills

    2. Content:

  • Myself and my family

  • Story

  • 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).
