Geography and History

 

At Christchurch Infant School, we aim to make our children aware of the world around them, people, places and the environment.

 

Initially children study their immediate environment, learning through exploration and first hand experiences. By the end of Year Two, children will have studied an area which contrasts with their own and will be able to use simple maps, globes and information sources to further their studies. Children are taught to use correct language to describe both man-made and natural geographical features in all aspects of Geography.

 

We aim to make the teaching of History relevant and interesting to young children. Children’s awareness of the past is explored through the use of pictures, stories and artefacts. In our teaching we make links between historical study and the children’s own experiences or those of their extended families.

 

Visits and visitors to school are used to enhance the children’s learning.

 

If you wish to find out more about your child's learning in this subject, please speak to your child's teacher.
