History and Geography
At Weald Rise Primary School, we pride ourselves on delivering the National Curriculum objectives for History and Geography through a topic approach. By teaching through a theme, this helps our pupils to see the links between subjects whilst having fun and learning.
Many of our topics also involve an educational visit, workshop or themed day.
This year, we have introduced the use of knowledge organisers to support the delivery of each topic. Each knowledge organiser identifies the key vocabulary and knowledge that pupils should learn from the topic.
At the end of each topic, pupils complete a short quiz linked to the knowledge organiser for their topic.
At Weald Rise Primary School our geography curriculum will provide children with a curiosity to develop their knowledge, skills and understanding to inspire them to become global citizens by exploring their own place in the world, their values and their responsibilities to other people, to the environment and to the sustainability of the planet.
