Geography provokes and answers questions about the natural and human worlds, using different scales of enquiry to view them from different perspectives.  It develops knowledge of places and environments throughout the world, an understanding of maps, and a range of investigative and problem solving skills, both inside and outside the classroom.  As such, it prepares children for adult life and employment.  Geography is a focus within the curriculum for understanding and resolving issues about the environment and sustainable development.  It is also an important link between the natural and social science.  It can inspire them to think about their own place in the world, their values, and their rights and responsibilities to other people and the environment


Children have a natural curiosity about the past in Britain and the wider world. In History sessions we consider how the past influences the present, what past societies were like, how these societies organised their politics, and what beliefs and cultures influenced people’s actions. As they do this, children develop a chronological framework for their knowledge of significant events and people and understand more about themselves as individuals and members of society. What they learn can influence their decisions about personal choices, attitudes and values.  We aim to:

  • Provide activities which nurture enjoyment, excitement and interest.
  • Solve real problems using knowledge of history to support arguments.
  • Develop effective enquiry skills
  • Understand the bigger pictures and where people and events fit into wider history, both British and World
  • Learn about key people and events, recognising cause and effect
  • Develop a chronological understand of history, sequencing periods of time, people and events
  • Support recording to share historical findings in different ways
  • Recognise the difference between primary and secondary sources and their use in interpreting the past.
