History and Geography-Knowledge and skills

At Meridian Angel Primary School, we endeavour to inspire all pupils to become
geographers and create curiosity and fascination about the world. Through the teaching
of Geography, we aim to give children an interest in and an enthusiasm for their own
surroundings and the world beyond, an understanding of the differences between
places, a sense of responsibility towards their environment and a range of skills to carry
out geographical enquiry.
The HEP Curriculum is high quality, well thought out and is planned to demonstrate
progression. The Curriculum teaches children about the world, opportunities are
provided for children to deepen their understanding by applying, analysing and
comparing their knowledge. We enable pupils to develop an appreciation of the fullness
of life and the world around them. The skills that they develop in Geography are
transferable to other curriculum areas and also promotes their spiritual, moral, social and
cultural development.
Children use a range of resources including maps, atlases, compasses and pictures. 
They learn about the Geography of the school and its grounds, the weather, the local
area and the use of land.
The specific aspects of this subject which are taught are:

  •  Location knowledge
  •  Place knowledge
  •  Human and Physical Geography
  •                                        Geographical Skills and Fieldwork

Our Geography curriculum is high quality, well thought out and is planned to
demonstrate progression


At Meridian Angel Primary School, we use the high quality HEP History
Curriculum which is high quality, well thought out and is planned to
demonstrate progression. The History Curriculum which should inspire in
pupils a curiosity and fascination about Britain’s past and that of the wider
world. It seeks to provide children with the opportunities to uncover new
stories and take them beyond the world they already know.
By linking learning to a range of topics, children have opportunities to
investigate and interpret the past, understand chronology, build an overview
of Britain’s past as well as that of the wider world, and to be able to
communicate historically. We develop children with the following essential
characteristics to help them become historians:

  •  An excellent knowledge and understanding of people, events and contexts from a

range of historical periods, including significant events in Britain’s past;

  •  The ability to think critically about History and communicate ideas confidently to a

range of audiences;

  •  The ability to support, evaluate and challenge their own and others’ views using

historical evidence from a range of sources;

  • The ability to think, reflect, debate, discuss and evaluate the past by formulating

and refining questions and lines of enquiry;

  • A respect for historical evidence and the ability to make critical use of it to support

their learning;

  •  A desire to embrace challenging activities, including opportunities to undertake

high-quality research across a range of History topics;

  • A developing sense of curiosity about the past and how and why people interpret

the past in different ways.

We want children to enjoy and love learning about History by developing their
knowledge and skills, not just through experiences in the classroom, but also
with the use of fieldwork and educational visits. We want their studies to
inform and develop their own identity and to spark curiosity about others.
Through expanding their knowledge and critical thinking we aim to cultivate
an appreciation of how actions, both past and present, impact our world. We
believe that this will provide them with the tools to become active citizens,
making a positive contribution towards society
