At Lickey Hills, we have worked hard to create an engaging curriculum, where learning in core subjects is enriched by History and Geography. Each year, pupils learn through three or four themes, which allows for cross curricular learning as often as possible. Pupils are highly engaged by this approach and are keen to apply their historical knowledge in their writing, artwork and design work.
Key skills that we aim to develop:
- A strong sense of chronology. We aim to support pupils to make links between their learning across the school, so that they may understand how many customs that we have today have developed over time.
- An understanding of how the world is formed and how the physical geography of a landscape impacts on human settlement and land use.
- Secure place knowledge and map reading skills.
