Geography and History form the basis for theme work throughout the school. Both areas are taught so that children may progressively develop the discrete skills, knowledge and understanding associated with each subject. Studies involve much practical work, often based on first-hand experiences through the use of artefacts, educational visits, guest visitors and the school’s immediate environment. Children are also given the opportunity to carry out research using a variety of resources including non-fiction books, encyclopedias, ICT, the Internet and other factual sources of information.
Understanding the History and Geography of our immediate vicinity is a key focus for the School and is part of the additional 20% of the Curriculum that we offer, beyond the expectations of the National Curriculum.
