At Harrowgate Hill Primary School, we teach our History and Geography through our Topic themes.
Our programmes of study have been developed to provide pupils with a comprehensive knowledge of Britain’s past and develop their understanding of significant locations in the wider world, and key events in world history.
Through the teaching of History, our aim is to inspire curiosity and equip pupils with the skills to ask insightful questions and develop a judgement based on the sources and arguments available to them. By the end of their Primary years, the children will have developed a chronologically secure knowledge and understanding of British, local and world history.
In Geography, children are interested and curious about the world around them. We equip children with knowledge about diverse places, resources, and both natural and human environments. We develop a deeper understanding of the Earth’s physical and human processes and the formation of different environments. The children’s geographical knowledge allows them to examine the connections between the Earth’s features and how these too change over time.
