Our History curriculum teaches children about a diverse range of people, historical periods, cultures and civilisations from the past and allows them to make links and draw comparisons with their own lives.
Our curriculum gives children a wide range of knowledge that gives them a solid understanding of how Britain, and the wider world, as it is today, came to be. The progression of learnt skills over their time at Gonville will allow them to think critically, evaluate evidence and arguments and develop perspective on the world around them today. Children will gain understanding of the process of change, the diversity of societies as well as their own identity.
Our Geography curriculum is designed to develop children’s curiosity and fascination in the world around them and to give them a broad understanding of place and location, which acts as a gateway to learning across our curriculum and into the future.
By the end of their time at Gonville, children will have studied locations, human and physical features, people and cultures and environmental issues spanning every continent. They will be confident in fieldwork skills that give them the tools to investigate their local area and understand how human and physical geography changes over time.
