Geography & History
Through a high-quality geography curriculum, children will be inspired to develop a curiosity and fascination about the world and its people, promoting a deep understanding of people and place. The study of geography empowers children to both explore and understand the world around them at a global, national and local level. Children will develop the skills to read their environment, enabling them to interpret the physical landscape, observe climatic events and discuss world events in a manner appropriate to their age. As children progress, their learning in geography will support them in making valuable contributions to the economic, social, and cultural life of their communities.
Through history, pupils gain a coherent knowledge and understanding of Britain’s past of local history and that of the wider world and thus encouraging curiosity about the past. We encourage children to think critically, weigh evidence and develop their own ideas and judgements. History helps pupils to understand the complexity of people’s lives, the process of change, the diversity of societies and relationships between different groups, as well as their own identity and the challenges of their time. The curriculum will ensure that pupils are able to layer and apply prior and current learning therefore building an understanding of chronology.
