History and Geography are taught through the school’s Big Idea topics, exploring a range of different places around the world and historical periods in time. The pupils are given frequent opportunities to have real life experiences, through ‘WOW’ days, school trips and visiting experts.
In Geography, pupils explore the physical and human world from local landscapes to contrasting global localities. Throughout their school career, pupils broaden their knowledge of a range of Geographical concepts. Alongside this, a variety of skills are developed, from field work to mapping, to deepen children’s understanding and facilitate learning in ‘real life’ contexts.
In History, exciting and interactive activities transport pupils back in time to understand what life and society was like in the past. Teaching and learning focuses on developing a sense of chronology and piecing together how society has changed over time. Pupils study a range of sources, both primary and secondary, and are encouraged to question evidence and establish viewpoints.
Religious Education is taught weekly and enriched through visits from religious speakers and to religious buildings.
