At Heber Primary School, through our History and Geography curriculum our intent is to teach children:
Children have one immersion day per term which is an entire day of teaching. Activities should be designed to address objectives from across the curriculum.
Each humanities topic has History and Geography objectives. Some topics are weighted towards one subject more than the other, but subject leaders have ensured that subject weighting is balanced across the year through the progression of skills document and the curriculum map. Teachers are given time to create a medium term plan each term to ensure appropriate coverage. This MTP details prior learning ensuring that new learning build upon prior learning, embedding long term understanding of knowledge and skills.
History and Geography progression maps show progression across the year group and in relation to other year groups. They also detail how skills repeated in different year groups are built upon to ensure progression. It is expected that teachers refer to them to identify prior knowledge.
For full details of the topic areas cored in our History and Geography curriculum, please see the Curriculum Overview.
