History and Geography
The aim of our curriculum is to build the knowledge, skills and attitudes pupils need to become informed, articulate and empowered.
Through the teaching of history and geography, we inspire our pupils’ curiosity about the world and the people within it. Children are encouraged to question, to reflect and to think critically. As they move through the curriculum children make connections and develop perspective and judgment.
Humanities are often at the centre of topic-based learning with a multi-disciplinary approach used to enable children to develop deeper understanding. Transferable skills such as critical curiosity and reasoning are developed through opportunities for research and real life experiences.
Trips enrich learning and provide a chance for children to learn practical skills such as mapping, fieldwork or examination of primary sources.
The content of the history and geography knowledge curriculum is guided by the National Curriculum requirements. Periods of history are organised across the school to provide a growing understanding of chronology and links across time and place.
