By inspiring curiosity and fascination in the world around us, we will create enthusiastic geographers. Pupils will investigate the local and global backdrops to their lives, developing tools of discovery and location which they’ll use in their old age, gaining cultural capital and becoming empowered citizens of our world. Through the study of geography, we develop a strong sense of place and scale, allowing pupils to become globally aware and understand how places change over time. By engaging pupils with a deeper learning of geographical concepts, they are encouraged to be independent with their enquiries and go on to apply their knowledge and skills as they grow and broaden their horizons. Through understanding of human processes, physical geography, and their interconnected nature; pupils are encouraged to participate actively in their community; contribute to solving environmental issues and communicating confidently with others about real world issues. This study of geographical issues supports the emotional and ethical development of students, while also allowing them to solve problems and show creativity and resourcefulness.
History fires pupils’ curiosity to ask questions and know more about Britain’s past and that of the wider world. Pupils will develop a chronological framework of British history as they move through Knights Primary, and this will enable them to make sense of the new knowledge they acquire. This will also allow them to understand the process of change, how we got to the ‘here and now’ and to understand what came before. This will empower our pupils to have a solid understanding of the past, the present and our future. We want pupils to realise that history can impact judgement and decision making and by understanding the past we can make the world a better place in the future. History’s unique concepts help pupils to be confident communicators by constructing arguments - supporting them to become analytical citizens who can question human motivation and society with skill and confidence.
