History & Geography

History & Geography

Historical and geographical understanding and skills are built up within the themes studied, having the flexibility to follow children’s lines of interest and enquiry.

Emphasis is placed on children’s own research, use of artefacts, discussion and role play.

Understanding of social events, behaviour and their effects on the world and local communities is built up through this variety of role play, discussion and debate in context.

West Town Primary Academy follows its own curriculum in history and geography drawing on elements of curriculum 2000, The Rose Review and the national curriculum 2014. Skills and progression are tracked.
