History and Geography helps us to learn about our World.
In our new academic year, new resources have been ordered to help make learning more engaging and enjoy real life learning.
With this, a Geography week will be organised to help our children learn about different countries around the world, with cross-curricular links with History, Music, Art, MFL and English.
There will also be a History Launch Day activity where children will "travel back in time" to different eras, where children will learn how we lived in a period back in time.
In November, children will also be taking part in Black History Month. Children will build a profile on an influential Black person, who has re-shaped the world and share their knowledge with the school.
Watch this space for their experiences.
A high-quality geography education should inspire in pupils 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. 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. Geographical knowledge, understanding and skills provide the framework and approaches that explain how the Earth’s features at different scales are shaped, interconnected and change over time.
The national curriculum for geography aims to ensure that all pupils:
high-quality history education will help pupils gain a coherent knowledge and understanding of Britain’s past and that of the wider world. It should inspire pupils’ curiosity to know more about the past. Teaching should equip pupils to ask perceptive questions, think critically, weigh evidence, sift arguments, and develop perspective and judgement. History helps pupils to understand the complexity of people’s lives, the process of change, the diversity of societies and relationships between different groups, as well as their own identity and the challenges of their time.
