The study of geography and history takes place as part of the requirements of the National Curriculum. Our objective is to approach history and geography by trying to give children first-hand experience within each subject.
In history, visits are made to places of interest that will make learning about people and places in the past easier. Both history and geography are studied through a creative project approach. In any project children use a wide range of scientific, mathematical and language skills to develop and extend their understanding of themselves and their place in the world.
The use of computers and the Internet is encouraged to promote and further develop the children’s ICT skills.
Skylark class have been learning about the Egyptians. We have had great fun creating large group artwork of sarcofagi, looking at a variety of Egyptian artifacts and thinking what they could be and also learning about the social structure with Pharaoh at the top.
