Our history and geography curriculum is currently being redesigned based upon research of how children learn best, make sense of their learning and construct links that build upon and revise previous learning.
Our vision for our new curriculum
Through History and Geography, we aim to enrich the lives and experiences of our children through a progressively sequenced curriculum. Our curriculum encompasses powerful knowledge and deep learning within an investigative framework whilst building upon subject specific vocabulary, concepts and skills.
The History and Geography Curriculum
Knowledge and skills are progressively sequenced.
An overarching question frames the theme with individual lessons planned around questions constructed to promote subject specific concepts, vocabulary and skills.
Every lesson includes retrieval of knowledge which is supported by a knowledge organiser, carefully constructed to include the powerful knowledge that every child will access and learn.
History and Geography Teaching
Teaching will build upon children’s prior knowledge and support them to see the coherent narrative of the each subject. Visits and artefacts will be used whenever possible to give children memorable and authentic experiences and lessons will be designed to be creative and engaging.
