Welcome to the History and Geography Page
Our History curriculum is intended to enable children to acquire an understanding of time, events and people in their lives. We want to inspire pupils' curiosity to know more about the past and to use this knowledge to gain an understanding of themselves and the world around them. We integrate History into our topic work to immerse the children in the learning. We choose the way in which we deliver the History National Curriculum skills based on our pupils' needs and development. We ensure our children experience History in different ways, through having a range of learning opportunities, including having visitors in school and taking part in trips relevant to the current topic.
Our Geography curriculum is intended to provide a purposeful means for exploring, appreciating and understanding the world in which we live. Geography is, by nature, an investigative subject, which develops and understanding of concepts, knowledge and skills. The Geography curriculum therefore enables children to develop knowledge and skills that are transferable to other curriculum areas and which can be and are used to promote their spiritual, moral, social and cultural development. Pupils at Longcause have access to a range of further opportunities to benefit their wider lives which build upon their geographical skills. Some of the valuable opportunities our pupils access include; The Duke of Edinburgh Award, MfL days in which they build their knowledge of other cultures and countries and also our expanding forest school work.
