The History and Geography curriculum consist of relevant and engaging topics that follow the National Curriculum
At George Tomlinson, termly cross-curricular topics cover the requirements of the National Curriculum, but also provide enough space for teachers and children to develop and follow their own interests. By personalising the topics, we aim to engage the children more fully and meet their needs in greater depth. By linking the subjects and topics in cross- curricular ways, we enable children to make connections in their learning and ICT is used across the curriculum to support this.
The work undertaken often includes rich and stimulating activities where children learn through discussion, active learning, and cooperative group work. Regular trips, cross-curricular learning, and visitors to the school further enhance the learning experience. Throughout the topic, key questions are used to provoke enquiry; research work is encouraged; and activities are built in that allow the teacher to monitor levels of, and progress in, skills and understanding
