Topic (History and Geography)


Our geography curriculum will encourage children to have a curiosity about the world, their place in it and impact on it. Children will learn about diverse places, people, resources and natural and human environments. They will begin to understand the Earth's key physical and human features. As pupils progress through school, their growing knowledge about the world will prompt thoughts and questions, which they can try and answer through research and exploration.  


We want children at St Lawrence to understand how the society we live in came to be. By studying societies throughout the ages and across the globe, our aim is for children to develop an overview of world history and British history. Our studies of these time periods look at the events, technologies, ideas/concepts and individuals that have made a lasting impact. In doing so, we aim to give children an appreciation of wider society, their place in it today, together with a moral understanding and appreciation that promotes good citizenship - learning from the past. Through the lens of being a historian, we intend for the children to investigate the past, understand chronology, and have an overview of British and world history through;

· developing an ability to assess evidence

· considering differing accounts and interpretations

· to understand the rise and fall of societies, the everyday lives therein and their legacies
