History Curriculum

Our aim is to nurture and spark the children’s interest in the past should they wish to grow up to be Historians. For all children to have a basic understanding of key periods in History and to learn to ask questions about why things have happened in the past and the impact of those events. This vision is achieved by:

  • A curriculum that builds on an understanding of chronology/key periods
  • A curriculum that promotes children’s curiosity and a desire to ask questions
  • A curriculum that develops an appreciation of the influences of the past

 

Geography Curriculum

Our aim is to enrich the future stewards of our planet and to provide them with the knowledge and skills needed to look after this world. All children will explore physical and human Geography to understand where we are in the world and to ensure it is a place for future generations to enjoy. This is achieved by:

  • A curriculum that develops Geographical skills through map work and investigation 
  • A curriculum that explores physical and human influences on the world
  • A curriculum that promotes and builds children’s understanding of locality and features

Kindness
  • Kindness is love. Kindness is sharing. Kindness is everything. Yasmin

Humility
  • Humility means that you accept defeat and don't boast. It means that you are not a sore loser. John

Gentleness
