History & Geography

History and Geography

History and Geography are taught through a thematic “topic” approach covering the subject content outlined in the National Curriculum, ensuring coverage and progression.  Topics often start with a question, which is then broken down into subsidiary questions which focuses the learning for the topic.  Topic is often used to develop core skills in literacy and maths and provides a vehicle to see that skills are used and applied across the curriculum.  Where possible visits and/or visitors are actively promoted to ensure that learning can be experiential and in context.
