Through our History and Geography topic-based curriculum, we encourage curiosity and fascination about the world and its people that we hope will remain with our pupils for the rest of their lives. Our topics draw together and enrich the teaching of other subjects such as English, drama, art and DT, ensuring our pupils gain a coherent knowledge and understanding of Britain, past and present, and that of the wider world. We encourage pupils to ask perceptive questions, think critically, weigh evidence, sift arguments, and develop perspective and judgement.
History is about bringing the past alive: ordering events in time; finding differences and similarities; writing and talking about the past; using primary and secondary sources for information; asking and answering questions. All classes learn how to link ‘then’ with ‘now’. Children are inspired to research events, discover how previous populations lived and to consider the effect of history on the present – demonstrating their knowledge and understanding through collaborative projects in English, ICT and Art.
