History and Geography at St Augustine's

Curriculum Intent: Geography

IMG_0836[1]IMG_0114[1]

The intent of the St Augustine’s Geography curriculum is to deliver a coherent curriculum which is accessible to all and that will maximise the outcomes for every child.

Geography will be taught via a range of ambitious, stimulating activities that build on children’s previous knowledge and encourage enquiry and independent learning, with opportunities to develop their own skills as geographers.

We intend to instil a love for Geography in our children and develop their knowledge of the world, as well as their place within it. Children will deepen their understanding of key vocabulary. We aim to provide children with the opportunities to investigate and build geographical expertise from their local area to the wider world. This includes locational knowledge, understanding of human and physical features and geographical and fieldwork techniques.

Curriculum Intent: History

The intent of the St Augustine’s History curriculum is to deliver a coherent curriculum which is accessible to all and that will maximise the outcomes for every child.

History will be taught via a range of ambitious, stimulating activities that build on children’s previous knowledge and encourage enquiry and independent learning, with opportunities to develop their own skills as historians. Children will deepen their understanding of key vocabulary.

In line with the national curriculum 2014, the curriculum at St Augustine’s aims to ensure that all pupils: Gain a coherent knowledge and understanding of Britain’s past and that of the wider world which helps to stimulate pupils’ curiosity to know more about the past; Are encouraged to ask perceptive questions, think critically, weigh evidence, sift arguments, and develop perspective and judgement; Begin to understand the complexity of people’s lives, the process of change, the diversity of societies and relationships between different groups, as well as the challenges of their time. History also helps children gain a sense of their own identity within a social, political, cultural and economic background. Because of this, we feel it is important for the subject to be taught discretely as well as incorporated within other curriculum subjects such as English and Art. Where appropriate, specific days in the school year are dedicated to aspects of History.
