Geography: The focus of our geography curriculum is our immediate locality. Children will learn about their locality and their country, their place within it and their impact on it. The curriculum is sequenced to work from the child out: gradually, children will learn about places that are further away, in increasing detail and include increasingly abstract concepts. Each unit within the coverage uses some form of map work.

History: Our history curriculum supports children to develop a secure sense of chronology so that children understand the overarching narrative of British history as well as key chapters from the history of the wider world. Through learning about the past, we enable children to make sense of the now and influence the future. Developing an understanding of human life across time, in all its complexities, will allow children to make reasoned judgements, filter arguments and make considered choices based on ‘lessons learned’.
