The Foundation Subjects
It is through the HUMANITIES that History, Geography and some Science is taught. In the younger age groups the content is covered through a topic approach. In the older year groups, however, it becomes increasingly necessary, due to the nature of the content and the demands on the children to teach through independent subjects. Through the planned work we aim to introduce the children to, and develop in them a greater understanding of, the physical world around them and the lives and work of those inhabit it. We also want the children to be curious about, and know something of, the people who lived before us.
Where possible and applicable the work is based on the local community and/or educational visits. In a bid to make the work more relevant, 'real' and exciting to the children, we have created and are continuing to expand a Geography and History resource base incorporating books, maps, videos, artefacts etc.
