History and Geography

In history lessons, children are encouraged to compare, contrast and examine how and why things have changed, to learn about historical leaders and events and to expand their research skills. In geography lessons pupils develop their knowledge of people and places to understand the Earth’s key physical and human processes. Lessons have a dynamic approach. For example, what better way to learn about leaders than to get into role and pretend to be a great leader such as Churchill? Learning how the earth is structured proves much easier when children are given the chance to build a model of it. Likewise, understanding the parts of a river is brought to life when children create a working model of a river.
