History & Geography
History is delivered so that children are able to appreciate each era in a broadly chronological context. Learners will gain knowledge, understanding and vocabulary of British, local and world history. The acquisition of knowledge is underpinned by historical enquiry skills that are progressive over the key stage. Alongside the development of the appropriate use of historical terms, critical questions will enable them to consider the society in which they live.
Our Geography curriculum aims to provoke and answer questions about the natural and human worlds, encouraging children to develop their vocabulary alongside a greater understanding of the world and their place in it. Geographical skills are taught progressively over the key stage in order to reinforce ability to acquire locational and place knowledge. We seek to inspire in our pupils a curiosity and fascination about the world and its people which will remain with them for the rest of their lives.
