History and Geography
Both of these subjects are planned for within a scheme of work and incorporated into well- structured topic work. In History the emphasis is upon developing a sense of the passing of time and an awareness that the circumstances we experience today have been shaped by our past. We begin at a personal level with your child’s direct experiences and gradually introduce wider historical issues as defined in the National Curriculum 2014.
When teaching Geography we begin with your child’s experience within the neighbourhood and then plan progression so that they are introduced to:
- A wider knowledge of the world
- The relative position of the countries
- The effects of mankind on the landscape and an investigation into geographical issues.
