At Reevy Hill Primary the purpose of history is to provide pupils with a solid knowledge of Britain’s past and the wider world as well as igniting pupil’s curiosity to research the past and find out from sources. Pupils develop their awareness of chronology, key words associated with time and the past and their questioning and research skills through the use of primary and secondary sources. Pupils’ critical thinking is developed through discussion and questioning of historical events.
The Geography curriculum develop curiosity and fascination about the world and its people that equips pupils with knowledge about diverse places, people, resources and natural and human environments, together with a deep understanding of the Earth’s key physical and human processes. Key geography skills like mapping are developed throughout school and help pupils to develop their understanding 'place'. The school uses a range of resources including Digi-maps to explore the local area and how it has changed over time.
