At St Nicholas we teach a broad and balanced curriculum. Each term children will either study a History or Geography unit. This is the same across the school ensuring that classes and siblings can have conversations about their learning and make links across the different units.
The teaching and learning of Geography is integral to our desire for the children at our School to go out into the world as ‘Global Explorers”! We believe that the teaching of Geography at St Nicholas should inspire and excite our children’s curiosity about the world and its people. ‘Worldliness’ is a key concept embedded within our Global Explorers curriculum, and we aim that all children develop an understanding that they are citizens of the world. Through our teaching, children will develop key geographical knowledge and skills in line with the aims of the National Curriculum, whilst also gaining an understanding of the responsibility they have- locally and globally- to look after and love our planet.
As a school we aim to ensure that all children leave us prepared for the world as ‘Global Explorers’ equipped to pursue whichever path they choose. The teaching of History is a key part of this aim. At St Nicholas, one of the big ideas of our Global Explorer Curriculum is to create learners who are ‘Worldly’. This means that our children will have a secure understanding of their world both past, present and future. Children will also develop a secure knowledge of local and world history through allowing them to see the context of their country, culture and politics. Furthermore, studying history will help children to understand the process of change, the diversity of societies and relationships between different groups, as well as their own identity and the challenges of their time. At our school children are engaged, excited and curious to find out more about the lives of children in different countries and societies throughout history!
