Geography and History at Mossley Primary School

History Newsflash

We have been awarded the Silver History Quality Mark!!!

This represents the quality of History that is being taught and learnt at our school. The report is a delight to read and we will soon make it available to you.

A huge congratulations to Miss Devereux and Mossley School. 

 

At Mossley CE Primary School, we aim for our curriculum to lead children's interests out into the world and for this to be effective the Humanities are important areas of study. Each has its specific knowledge and skills. While factual recall alone is insufficient to develop knowledge and understanding, some factual learning, including specific vocabulary are needed to achieve in these subjects.

In Key Stage 1 and 2 the children experience a range of topics where History and Geography are taught alongside each other. Some topics may have a greater History focus or others may be more Geography focused (please see the Curriculum Plan). This year the children have done topics such as Fragile Earth in Year 6, Stones and Bones in Year 3 and we have also done a whole school topic called Lest we Forget in order to commemorate the centenary of the First World War.  

In Reception Humanities are included in Understanding the World, helping children to understand the physical world, their community and cultural world.

The children in our school are very proud of their topic books and they feature all of their learning in History and Geography.

This year our Humanities curriculum has been enriched through visits to Stafford Caslte, Congleton Museum (whole school), Norton Priory and much more.

Please take a look at our Humanities policy at the bottom of this page that details how we plan, deliver and asess these two very important subjects. We have also added our History and Geography progression grids that we use for assessment purposes.
