At Saint Patrick's, History forms an integral part of the curriculum. We believe the study of History inspires children's curiosity, encourages them to ask critical questions and enables them to have a better understanding of the society in which they live and that of the diverse wider world. It helps children gain a sense of their own identity within a social, cultural, political and economic background.
Here at Saint Patrick's, our Geography is challenging, motivating, topical and fun. In our diverse society, children need to understand other people and cultures, more than ever before. Geography makes a major contribution to children's physical, intellectual, social and emotional development. We believe that becoming a geographer enables a child to develop a fundamental understanding of themselves and their place in our world. In Y6 we acquire the ability to understand the interaction between physical and human processes. Geographical knowledge, understanding and skills provide the framework and approaches that explain how the Earth's features, at different scales, are shaped, interconnected and change over time.
Our tailored Geography and History Curriculum is as follows:
