At Kea Community Primary School, we teach our Geography and History through rich and exciting topics, which are outlined on our Four Year Rolling Programme.
In 2017-18, children will cover topics called Our Parish-Our Town and Winter Festivals in the Autumn Term.
Clothes and Tudors and Stuarts then the United Kingdom will be our topics for the Spring Term.
In the Summer Term, children will learn about Britain At War and then The World Cup.
Key Stages will approach these topics in appropriate, age specific ways and topics include a broad balance of historical and geographical skills, with a specific focus on a major world religion during the Winter Festivals topic for children in Key Stage 2. This year children learned about Judaism, Sikhism, Hinduism and Islam.
