History and Geography

At Cubitt Town, each half term, we teach the equivalent of one hour a week of creative History and Geography lessons within which we focus on both developing children’s knowledge and skills. Throughout their time in Cubitt Town Juniors, the children will follow British history as well as continuing to deepen their understanding of how we can learn from the past. Curiosity will be fostered in these sessions, through use of quality resources and artefacts.

Skills are broken down to ensure progression throughout the year groups.  Each half term, children will produce a written piece to reflect their learning of subject vocabulary and content, as well as to consolidate Literacy skills. This piece will also allow children to take ownership of their development, through self- and peer- assessment opportunities. Teachers record this assessment against the objectives for each term using the Focus assessment document.
