At Shoreditch Park Primary School, we aim to produce a high-quality history education that will enable pupils to gain a coherent knowledge and understanding of Britain’s past and that of the wider world. We aim to inspire pupils’ curiosity to know more about the past. We want our children to ask perceptive questions, think critically, weigh evidence, sift arguments, and develop perspective and judgement. Pupils will understand the complexity of people’s lives, 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 Shoreditch Park Primary School, we aim to produce a high-quality geography education that inspires pupils’ curiosity and fascination about the world and its people, which will remain with them for the rest of their lives. At Shoreditch Park Primary School, we aim to challenge children’s stereotypes about countries across the world. We want our children to identify how countries develop a rich economy and to identify global trends. Our Topics encourage children to learn about countries of their origin and culture. Teaching equips pupils with knowledge about diverse places, people, resources and natural and human environments, together with a deep understanding of the Earth’s key physical and human processes. As pupils progress, their growing knowledge about the world should enable them to deepen their understanding of the interaction between physical and human processes, and of the formation and use of landscapes and environments.
