Humanities (History & Geography)
Our vision at Flora Gardens is to raise standards in History and Geography across the school. We want our pupils to acquire fundamental skills and knowledge in these subjects. Pupils will feel confident and proud of their identity and celebrate the cultural diversity of our school.
Our high-quality History education helps pupils gain the knowledge and understanding of Britain’s past, and that of the wider world. Our teaching equips pupils to ask perceptive questions, think critically, weigh evidence and develop perspective and judgement. History helps pupils to understand 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.
Our high-quality Geography education inspires in our pupils a curiosity and fascination about the world and its people that will remain with them for the rest of their lives. Our 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 well as to gain geographical knowledge, understanding and skills.
History and geography are taught through topic work and pupils learn creatively both inside and outside the classroom.
