Vision for History / Geography

Appropriate knowledge and skills are introduced largely through topic work, but we do feel that there is a basic core of knowledge needed, such as names of continents, capital cities and important historical figures and dates.  Cross-curricular links are made wherever appropriate or work may be covered through ‘theme days’. We have excellent links with the Burton Leonard History Group and our pupils had the privilege of interviewing village residents and people evacuated to the village in The Second World War leading to the publication of ‘The Way We Were 100 Years Ago.’ Currently we are working with Burton Leonard History Group to unpick tales from our school log books which date back to the early 1800s.
