Geography

We believe that Geography should be challenging, motivating, topical and fun. In our diverse society children need, more than ever before, to understand other peoples and cultures. We aim to expand the children’s horizons and foster an understanding of how other people live.

Children learn how to draw and interpret maps and develop the skills of research, investigation and problem solving. Our Geography teaching motivates children to find out about the physical world and to recognise the importance of sustainable development for the future of mankind.

History

Children are taught History with the intention that they ask not simply ‘what do we know?’ but ‘how do we know?’.

The History syllabus aims to teach children about past events using varied and interesting methods of discovery. The children learn about a wide range of historical events ranging from the Romans right through to the Victorians, with a major emphasis on British history.

Children are given opportunities to be creative in how they learn: role-play, stories, school visits, research and practical work. Visits from a travelling theatre company, a professional storyteller and a local artist also enhance the children’s learning.
