It is our vision at Flora Gardens that children should be taught the key skills to enable them to become well-rounded and critical learners. History and geography are taught through topic work and children learn both inside and outside the classroom. We believe that children learn not just by reading maps but through asking questions and conducting research to find out why the world is shaped as it is.
Teachers strive to make creative links between foundation and core subjects as it has been proved that pupils learn faster when skills and concepts are applied across subjects. Pupils at Flora Gardens are taught to apply the skills they learn in history and geography to support their investigations and work in other areas of the curriculum. The creative arts are also used to help enrich learning with links being made to dance, art, design technology and ICT.
