Geography and History
At St Nicholas CE Primary School, we aim to provide a broad, balanced and differentiated curriculum; ensuring the progressive development of geographical concepts, knowledge and skills. We aim to inspire in pupils a curiosity and fascination about the world and its people and to equip pupils with knowledge about diverse places, people, resources and natural and human environments. The curriculum will foster a deeper understanding of the physical and human processes of the world we live in.
At St Nicholas CE Primary School, we believe the study of History inspires children’s curiosity, encourages them to ask critical questions and enables them to have a better understanding of their own heritage, the society in which they live and of the wider world. They will critically analyse different sources of information to gain a better insight into the past, weighing evidence and thinking deeply to develop their own perspectives and judgements. We believe that History helps pupils to understand the complexity of people’s lives, the process of change, the diversity of societies and relationships between different groups.
