History & Geography
In history the emphasis is on learning the use of historical skills, as well as learning about the people and cultures of the past. Information, knowledge and understanding will be gained by visits to museums, castles and other similar properties and by the use of artefacts, photographs, video programmes, books, websites and films. Children are encouraged to ask questions about the past, challenge given information and discover more about their lives and surroundings.
Children will learn about their own environment and other areas through a variety of studies. Skills such as following directions, map reading and map making are covered, as are weather observations, surveys and data collection. Further skills taught are observation and investigation about the quality of the environment in a locality, economic factors about the use of land, communications and studying rivers and their effect on the landscape.
