HISTORY

At Cathedral Primary School we want children to be passionate about History. We aim for children to leave school with a coherent knowledge and understanding of Britain’s past and that of the wider world, how this has shaped our present and how it will continue to affect our future. Their understanding of chronology, historical enquiry and knowledge of significant events from the past will develop and build year-on-year from Reception until Year 6. 

Through our enquiry approach to learning, we will encourage children’s curiosity, teaching them to pose questions and investigate answers. They will be critical thinkers, evaluating the value of different sources and evidence, and they will use this to develop arguments, judgement and opinion. 

Children will explore the complexity and diversity of life and society within their locality and that of the wider world, noting how it has changed and why. This will help to foster an awareness of individual identity in children, giving them a sense of perspective and place within the world.

GEOGRAPHY 

At Cathedral Primary School, children will develop a sense of awe and wonder for the environment in which they live. We will encourage and support children to become positive members of their local, national and international communities. 

Through our enquiry approach to learning, we will develop children’s curiosity about the world around them. They will pose questions and investigate answers. They will be critical thinkers, evaluating different sources and evidence, and they will use this to develop arguments, judgement and opinion. 

We aim to equip children with knowledge and understanding of the world, people, places and environment, along with issues that may threaten these. They will develop their geographical knowledge and skills year-on-year from Reception to Year 6. 

We want children to become passionate and positive activists when it comes to their planet. Children will understand the importance of conservation and how to make a difference now and for future generations.
