History

We use Rising Stars History as a scheme of work to support our curriculum programme for history. We ensure pupils gain a coherent knowledge and understanding of Britain’s history, their locality and the history of the wider world. The curriculum includes key questions to develop the use of historical enquiry, as well as a focus on the acquisition and application of key subject knowledge, concepts and vocabulary throughout.  Skills, knowledge and understanding in history progress through Year 1 to Year 6, being taught, developed and applied throughout the schemes of work. A range of opportunities are provided to enable all children to communicate their knowledge and understanding of the subject. Links are made  within and across units to support children in making connections and in developing a strong overview of chronology, breadth and local to global history.

 

Geography

Geography education should inspire in pupils a curiosity and fascination about the world and its people that will remain with them for the rest of their lives.”  During their time in Key Stage 1 pupils will develop knowledge about the world, the United Kingdom and their locality. They will learn to use basic subject - specific vocabulary relating to human and physical geography and begin to use geographical skills, including first hand observation , to enhance their locational awareness.

In Key Stage 2 pupils will have the opportunity to extend their knowledge and understanding beyond the local area to include the United Kingdom and Europe, North and South America. This will include the location and characteristics of a range of the world’s most significant human and physical features. Pupils will learn to develop their use of geographical knowledge , understanding and skills to enhance their locational and place knowledge.
