Geography

Humanities topics are taught alongside a set of skills which progress through the year groups. Our curriculum is designed for children to accumulate a range of skills across history and geography namely: chronology, map skills, enquiry and depth of knowledge.

Formulating perceptive questions is inherent in our Jewish history learning and we encourage the children to emulate this in secular history lessons, in order to inspire curiosity about the past. In order to develop their curiosity about the world, we use maps and atlases as a starting point to deepen their locational knowledge. The rationale behind using a quality text in English lessons, which relates to the chosen humanities topic, is to fully engage and immerse children in a topic or theme, in order to generate enthusiasm and encourage knowledge-sharing across lessons.
