Learning/Curriculum‎ > ‎Computing‎ > ‎


Wherever possible, connections are made between subjects to support children in their learning between different curriculum areas. Theme units of
work based on the National Curriculum Programme of Study for History and Geography are planned to provide broad and balanced learning experiences. Each year group has three themes per year (one per term) which is taught through 'Thematics' covering History and Geography skills. 

Through these varied topic areas learning in subjects such as art and design technology can be incorporated. Through this integration of knowledge, skills and understanding for different curriculum areas, teaching and learning time can be more effectively used and thus provides potential for greater depth and breadth of learning. 

We will also enhance a child's learning through educational visits to museums and historical places of interest. 

The aim of our geography and history curriculum is that all children will develop the traits necessary to become ‘Geographers and Historians’.  These are outlined below:


An excellent knowledge of where places are and what they are like. 

An excellent understanding of the ways in which places are interdependent and interconnected and how much human and physical environments are interrelated. 

An extensive base of geographical knowledge and vocabulary. 

Fluency in complex, geographical enquiry and the ability to apply questioning skills and use effective analytic and presentational techniques. 

The ability to reach clear conclusions and develop a reasoned argument to explain findings 

Significant levels of originality, imagination or creativity as shown in interpretations and representations of subject matter. 

Highly developed and frequently utilised fieldwork and other geographical skills and techniques. 

A passion for and commitment to the subject, and a real sense of curiosity to find out about the world and the people who live there. 

The ability to express well-balanced opinions, rooted in good knowledge and understanding about current and contemporary issues in society and the environment. 

An excellent knowledge and understanding of people, events and contexts from a range of historical concepts and processes. 

The ability to think critically about history and communicate ideas very confidently in styles appropriate to a range of audiences. 

The ability to consistently support, evaluate and challenge their own and others' views using detailed, appropriate and accurate historical evidence derived from a range of sources. 

The ability to think, reflect, debate, evaluate and discuss the past, formulating and refining questions and lines of enquiry. 

A passion for history and an enthusiastic engagement in learning, which develops their sense of curiosity about the past and their understanding of how and why people the past in different ways.
