History and Geography: Creative Curriculum

Our curriculum is designed carefully to ensure National Curriculum coverage and progression of key skills. Using a thematic approach we encourage children to make links between subjects, to make learning enjoyable make tasks purposeful. This helps to fosters deeper engagement and purpose for History and Geography tasks, giving children specific knowledge in these areas. We ensure children have access to a wide range of high quality texts which support our themes and encourage love of reading.
To further support knowledge acquisition we use knowledge organisers with key information, facts and dates to help children remember and recall information linked to the topic. These are revisited frequently through a variety of different tasks and activities.

We provide a wide range of enrichment activities to support our curriculum, including trips visitors and local area studies to enhance the experience of the students in our care.
