History and Geography

History Statement

 The intent of our History curriculum is to deliver a curriculum which is accessible to all and that will maximise the outcomes for every child so that they know more, remember more and understand more. As a result of this they will

    • Increase and develop their historical skills, concepts, knowledge and attitudes.
    • Increase their understanding of the present in the context of the past.
    • Develop and use their skills in enquiry, analysis, evaluation, and argument.
    • Develop their interest in the past, arousing their curiosity and motivation to learn.
  • Develop a sense of identity through learning about the past.

The history curriculum

  • We plan using the National Curriculum.
  • We enhance the curriculum using progression grids.
  • Subject Progression grids are used to develop long term planning.
  • Teachers use the long term planning to plan units of work and deliver individual lessons.  

Geography Statement

It is our intent for the Geography element of our school curriculum to inspire pupils with a curiosity and fascination about the world and its people that will remain with them for the rest of their lives. Teaching should equip pupils with knowledge about diverse places, people, resources and natural and human environments, together with a deep understanding of the Earth’s key physical and human processes. By revisiting these areas of learning regularly children will remember more, know more and understand more. As pupils progress, their growing knowledge about the world should help them to deepen their understanding of the interaction between physical and human processes, and of the formation and use of landscapes and environments. We want our children to gain confidence and have practical experiences of geographical knowledge, understanding and skills that explain how the Earth’s features at different scales are shaped, interconnected and change over time.
