History

At Falkland Primary School, we believe that a high quality history education will help pupils gain a coherent knowledge and understanding of Britain’s past and that of the wider world. We are aware of the rich local history that surrounds us - Bronze Age burial moulds, Civil war battle fields and links to Highclere castle and use this to inspire our pupils’ curiosity to know more about the past.

Our teaching will seek to equip pupils to ask perceptive questions, think critically, weigh evidence, sift arguments and develop a sense of perspective and judgement. History helps pupils to understand the complexity of people’s lives, the process of change, the diversity of societies and relationships between different groups, as well as their own identity and the changes of their time. History will be taught through enquiry, use of resources, artefacts and images to support investigation. 

Geography

A geographer is an expert in the study of the physical features of the earth and its atmosphere, and of human activity as it affects and is affected by these. At Falkland, we will try to incorporate our Falkland values to build on the skills that are essential in becoming the best geographer we can be. These skills are:

  • Spatial reasoning – To be able to make and manipulate maps, understand land use and population patterns and justify the human and physical effects on an area.
  • Curiosity – To have endless fascination about the world and different trends within geography, such as population, migration and environmental changes and asking questions to further their knowledge.
  • Communication skills – To be able to communicate honestly about the effects people have on the world they live in and to be able to hold honest conversations about their thoughts and feelings on a variety of human and physical geographical elements.
  • Thinking skills – To be able to form theories from their own knowledge and develop these ideas with logic, judgement and reasoning.
