Geography

 

Our Geography curriculum has been specifically tailored to meet the unique context of our school. It is designed to be broad and balanced, providing all pupils with the opportunity to master their learning and deepen their knowledge, making sense and giving purpose as to why we learn about geography. Teachers will provide pupils with challenging big questions about geography, which will help them change and transform our society, putting their faith into action.

 

At St. Patrick’s we believe that Geography helps to promote and answer questions about the natural and human worlds, encouraging children to develop a greater understanding of their world and their place in it.  We recognise that the location of our city and our local respective communities are a vital resource to be investigated, to encourage curiosity and inspire pupils to understand how human and physical geographic features are continually changing around them.

 

History

 

Our History curriculum has been specifically tailored to meet the unique context of our school. It is designed to be broad and balanced, providing all pupils with the opportunity to master their learning and deepen their knowledge, making sense and giving purpose as to why we learn about history. Teachers will provide pupils with challenging big questions about history, which will help them change and transform our society, putting their faith into action.

 

At St. Patrick’s we follow a broad and balanced history curriculum giving pupils the opportunity to build, master, and deepen their knowledge and understanding of Britain’s past and that of the wider world. We recognise that our city and our respective communities are a vital resource to inspire pupils’ curiosity and to celebrate their own heritages.

  • Chronological understanding
