Geography & History
Each of our topics has a Geography and/or History focus. For example, ‘I am a Londoner’ incorporated using geographical vocabulary, locating London, England on a map and learning about significant events such as ‘The Great Fire of London’.
We endeavor to teach all of the Geography and History objectives in this cross curricular way, putting the learning of knowledge and skills into a context.
The children use maps to locate cities and countries and navigate themselves around the school using plans. The children also learn about human and physical geography e.g. seasonal and daily weather patterns.
Throughout our topics we teach the children about significant individuals who have contributed to national and international achievements and the children use a range of sources to learn about significant national and global events beyond memory.
