History and Geography

Both our History and Geography curriculums are taught through a variety of exciting topics that are covered each half term.

Our aim is to encourage the children to be curious about the world, other cultures and different nations, sparked by a stimulating curriculum spanning from the Ancient World to the present day!

History

“The more you know about the past, the better equipped you are for the future”

– Theodore Roosevelt

Our pupils develop a good knowledge and understanding of Britain's past and that of the wider world. We think it is important for the children to understand how people’s lives have shaped the nation and the way we live today.

Key Stage One

Our younger children focus on the significant events in British history – from World War I to the Great Fire of London - and other key events from around the world!

We also learn about the interesting lives of significant individuals in the past who have contributed to national and international achievements. 

Key Stage Two

In Key Stage Two, the children continue to develop a secure understanding of British, local and world history. They begin to look at patterns and trends over time and develop the use of historical terminology!

One of our favourite outings in Key Stage Two is the Year 6 trip to the Cabinet War Rooms where the children get the chance to investigate artefacts and learn about Churchill as a leader!

Geography

 “Without Geography, you’re nowhere.”

– Jimmy Buffett

In Geography, we teach transferable skills that engage the children and prepare them for everyday life. From map reading to an understanding of the weather, our children are provided with the fundamentals of geography.

Key Stage One

In Key Stage One, the children begin to develop an understanding of the world around them! Not only do they gain an awareness of the UK and its surroundings, they also learn the names and locations of the seven continents and five oceans across the globe!

Key Stage Two

In Key Stage Two, we begin to use a range of different maps, atlases and globes to identify the UK and other countries.
