History & Geography

We study a skills and knowledge-based curriculum in these subjects linked with our themes.  For example, for our Local Area theme we study local history and geography field work skills of mapping and orienteering. There is a clear progression in terms of expectations from one class to the next and children build on their historical and geographical understanding as they move through school.  We bring the subjects alive through drama and outdoor learning as well as visitors to school and trips.

SEND: For children with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities, we ensure that all teaching and learning is inclusive and that children are supported wherever necessary with resources, teaching assistant or teacher support and additional input if required. We are also aware that some children excel in these subjects but may find the recording and “English” skills more difficult so we provide support accordingly to ensure that all children achieve their potential.

Please see in the Theme section the overviews for each term.
