How did we get here? Where do we come from? History helps shed light on these big questions. Children learn to place events in chronological order, and learn about the lives of men, women and children from the history of Britain and the wider world. They study events and places from the past. By investigating the past using different sources including books, objects and computers they look at history from different viewpoints.
Learning about the links between our lives and the environment around us is central to geography at Primary school. Children learn to use geographical skills and resources to find out about places, local and further a field in this country and abroad. It is a subject that is about the investigation of questions, examining the impact of our actions on the world and examining the world’s physical features.
