History and Geography

History Statement of Intent


  • To empower learners to become curious, to develop their own opinions by evaluating evidence, and to build a deeper understanding of the present by engaging with and questioning the past.


Geography Statement of Intent


  • To ignite a curiosity of their surroundings, broaden the children's knowledge of the wider world and understand the interaction between physical and human processes. 


At Holy Cross, the children take an enquiry based approach to learning in History and Geography. This gives them the opportunity to explore around a topic of interest and research information linked to different areas. Children are encouraged to recognise there are multiple sources of History and Geography and share their own opinions of the wider world and what this means for us today.


We aim to bring topic based learning into all aspects of the curriculum. This means the children will be encouraged to use their learning from History and Geography across all areas of the curriculum. This could involve some art work based on the Romans, or a myth about the Ancient Greeks. This helps to unite the children's view of the topic and bring it into all aspects of their learning.
