Holy Family Catholic Primary School

Jesus said "Let the children come to me" We live and learn and love in His way.

At Holy Family, geography and history are taught as part of a creative curriculum. We make every effort to ensure this is a rich and stimulating curriculum, aiming to inspire our children’s curiosity, encouraging them to engage with the world around them.

As geographers, children learn about cultural differences between people and places around the world as well as physical processes that shape the environment.

As historians, we help children to think critically and ask perceptive questions , developing a sense of chronology through learning about key dates, people and locations both in the UK and around the world.

Throughout the school there are opportunities for an exciting variety of trips which bring the children’s learning to life and offer opportunities for pupils to improve fieldwork techniques and learn from first hand experiences.

We follow the national curriculum for both geography and history and the links are provided below:
