HUMANITIES: HISTORY AND GEOGRAPHY
Our History and Geography teaching follows the 2014 National curriculum and takes the form of termly ‘topics’. We endeavour to link subjects where appropriate across a topic, weaving these into our whole school curriculum planning so that there is progression through the school. Pupils can therefore link their learning and build on existing knowledge to extend and widen their skills, concepts, attitudes and understanding.
We bring the curriculum to life through a wide range of hands-on and ‘real-life’ activities, such as handling historical artefacts or carrying out practical environmental activities in our own grounds or the local area. In addition children have the opportunity to participate in regular trips and themed days to bring topics alive, for example, ‘Greek Day’, ‘Roman Day’ and trips to local museums and exhibitions.
