A high-quality history education helps pupils gain a coherent knowledge and understanding of Britain’s past and that of the wider world.
At the Minster Junior School, history is taught via a creative curriculum, largely in chronological order, recognising the importance of engaging topics that provide a meaningful context.
History helps children to start to understand the complexity of people’s lives, the process of change, the diversity of societies and relationships between different groups, as well as explore their own identity.
Our history teaching inspire pupils’ curiosity and requires the children to think critically, weigh evidence and draw conclusions.
At The Minster Junior School, we provide a high-quality geography education in order to inspire in 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 pupils progress, their growing knowledge about the world helps them to deepen their understanding of the interaction between physical and human processes, and of the formation and use of landscapes and environments and how they change over time.
