Bugle Primary School History and Geography

 

The aim of History and Geography at Bugle Primary School is to give the children a wider perspective on their world and to provide the beginnings of an understanding of the human situation. Children are encouraged to develop transferable skills they can use across the curriculum and in later life, such as perceptive questions, thinking critically and weighing evidence. Also, by stimulating their interest of other times and places children develop an awareness of themselves in relation to their community and the part they can play in it.

  • Develop children’s knowledge of past civilisations and the expansion of these civilisations and empires. 
  • Introduce children to historical enquiry and the ability to formulate and research questions using a variety of sources.
