Fawbert & Barnard's Primary School

Learning for Life

Geography and History

At Fawbert and Barnard’s we believe that our topic approach helps to provoke and answer questions about the natural and human worlds, encouraging an inquisitive mind in to geography and history. This drives children to develop a greater understanding of their world and their place in it. We seek to inspire in children a curiosity and fascination about the world and its people. We aim to develop a range of investigation and problem-solving skills that are transferable to other curriculum areas.

In geography, children collect, analyse and communicate with a range of data gathered through experiences of fieldwork that deepen their understanding of geographical processes.

In history, we use a range of sources from different periods of time such as WW2, the Romans, the Victorians and our local history. We question the reliability of these and form questions about them.

We strive to create a supportive and collaborative ethos for learning by providing various investigative and enquiry based learning opportunities.
