History and Geography form a key part of our topic based studies through the Inspire Curriculum. We believe that the teaching of humanities enriches the children’s lives and by talking about and actively exploring a variety of physical and human features in the past, present and future all pupils will gain a true feel for the world around them and how events have influenced our lives today.
We believe children should see themselves as an important part of the society that surrounds them and be encouraged to have a curiosity about the differing people and events in their world now and long ago and understand the interdependence of lands, cultures and of different generations within a global ecosystem. We aim to foster a desire for lifelong learning that may develop into future hobbies/pastimes e.g. visiting museums, rock collecting, becoming part of the local heritage group.
We have even built our own Celtic Hut on site in our environmental area.
