History and Geography

We believe that developing our children as young historians and geographers by engaging them with a relevant, exciting and challenging curriculum which inspires curiosity is essential for preparing them for an adult life in the 21st century.


INSPIRE: curiosity to find out more about Britain’s past and that of the wider world.
Allow children to to ask perceptive questions, think critically, weigh evidence, sift arguments, and develop perspective and judgement, using a wide range of sources of evidence.
DEVELOP: skills of critical thinking which means making reasoned judgements that are logical and well thought out and not merely accepting arguments and conclusions as they are presented but having a healthy, discerning and questioning attitude about new information
COMMUNICATE: work in a variety of ways, including diagrams, illustrations, pictures, letters, posters, annotated drawings and maps, reports, PowerPoints and oral accounts and presentations.

LINK: to make connections between ways of life in the past and present to better inform our futures.

So that all children are:
Resourceful and engaged in purposeful play using key vocabulary and asking questions.
Resilient when things go wrong (as they do!).
Reciprocal and can share their ideas by listening and explaining.
Reflective and use their knowledge and skills to make links with other areas.

Children grow up with a sense of identity and belonging on a personal, cultural, national and global level. As learners they come to appreciate the diversity of human experience and consequently understand more about themselves and as members of society- an essential skill for life-long learning.
