Geography and history

Geography

Intent

The Geography curriculum is delivered through an engaging creative curriculum approach of Topic based learning.

In St. Margaret Mary’s we want to inspire in pupils a curiosity and fascination about the world and its people that will remain with them for the rest of their lives. Our learners develop knowledge about the world, the United Kingdom and their locality.

Implementation

In St. Margaret Mary’s, Geography is delivered through ‘The Voyagers’ scheme of work which allows children to learn and progress through the knowledge and skills in a variety of units whilst ensuring National Curriculum objectives are fully met.

To ensure planning for progression, specific units within the scheme are designated to Year One and Year Two.

Impact

Children will be confident geographers who have a sound knowledge of their local surroundings and the wider locality. They will be able to use observational skills in simple fieldwork activities.

 

History

Intent

The History curriculum is delivered through an engaging creative curriculum approach of Topic based learning.

In St. Margaret Mary’s we want all children to be aware of their own history and of the changes within their own lives and that of beyond their living memory. We ensure that we inspire our pupils’ curiosity to know more about the past and of the lives of significant individuals.

Implementation

In St. Margaret Mary’s, History is delivered through ‘The Voyagers’ scheme of work which allows children to learn and progress through the knowledge and skills in a variety of units whilst ensuring National Curriculum objectives are fully met.

To ensure planning for progression, specific units within the scheme are designated to Year One and Year Two, with some additional discrete History lessons, such as Remembrance Day.

Impact

Children will be inquisitive historians who have knowledge of their own history and the impact of others and will embed their use of questioning across the curriculum.
