Humanities

At Great Kimble we study a range of both History and Geography topics.

History Intent

Our History curriculum includes half-termly topics for all children from Year 1 to Year 4 with Geography being taught during the second half-term. History is taught within the EYFS through cross-curricular learning and topics. We aim to offer a high-quality history education that will inspire a life-long Love for learning about our past and will help pupils gain a coherent and honest knowledge and understanding of Britain’s past and that of the wider world. It should inspire pupils’ curiosity to Learn more about the past. Teaching should equip pupils to ask perceptive questions, think critically, weigh evidence, sift arguments, and develop perspective and judgement. History helps pupils to understand the complexity of people’s lives, the process of change, the diversity of societies and relationships between different groups which will enable them to Live with understanding, compassion and tolerance as they grow older. It also helps children gain a sense of their own identity within a social, political, cultural and economic background. History is taught discreetly whilst also been woven into the over-arching topic of the term and taught within cross-curricular planning wherever possible.

At Great Kimble School we understand the importance of children being exposed to a variety of historical opportunities and experiences to enhance their knowledge and understanding of the past. Because of this, we aim to plan and organise first hand experiences in and outside of the classroom regularly throughout the year.

Geography Intent

Our Geography curriculum includes half-termly topics for all children from Year 1 to Year 4 with History being taught during the other half of the term. Geography is taught within the EYFS through cross-curricular learning and topics. We aim to offer a high-quality geography education that will inspire a curiosity, fascination and Love of the world and its people that will remain with them for the rest of their Lives. We aim to equip our children with the knowledge about diverse places, people, resources and natural and human environments together with a deep understanding of the Earth’s key physical and human processes. As children progress through KS2, their growing knowledge about the world should help them to deepen their understanding of the interaction between physical and human processes, and of the formation and use of landscapes and environments. At Great Kimble School, we understand that our pupils are the future and endeavour to prepare them to be resilient and compassionate individuals that thrive within the ever-changing world around them. Children will Learn about the importance of sustainability and how they can be a part of positive change and reform for the future and for our planet.

At Great Kimble School we appreciate the positive impact of children being exposed to a variety of hands on opportunities and experiences to enhance their knowledge and understanding of the world. Because of this, we aim to plan and organise first hand experiences in and outside of the classroom regularly throughout the year.
