History and Geography

Our History and Geography Curriculum at Sudbury

 

At Sudbury Primary School, we teach History and Geography as part of our new project based curriculum. The children immerse themselves in projects which allow them to explore History and Geography in a more practical manner. 

 

We use both History and Geography to give children the opportunity to advance their knowledge of the world whilst learning more about the diverse cultures that make up our school community. Not only do the children carry out projects about our local area, but also of the world beyond Sudbury. From the Ancient Egyptians to the Victorians, the children at Sudbury experience an immersive Humanities curriculum which develops their understanding of the world today and how we got here.

 

Through the teaching of History, children gain a deeper knowledge and understanding of Britain’s past and that of the wider world. We aim to inspire curiosity, equip pupils with the skills to ask insightful questions and develop a judgement based on the sources and arguments available to them. History helps children to understand the differences in people’s lives, the process and impact of change and the challenges of their times. 

 

Through the teaching of Geography, children are interested and curious about the world around them. We equip children with knowledge about diverse places, resources, and both natural and human environments. We develop a deeper understanding of the Earth’s physical and human processes and the formation of different environments. The children’s geographical knowledge allows them to examine the connections between the Earth’s features and how these too change over time.
