Geography is concerned with the study of places, the human and physical processes which shape them and the people who live in them. Through our teaching of this subject we aim that your child will develop an understanding of the world they live in and of the interdependence of individuals, groups, nations and the environment. We also study the child's local area.
Our teaching of history aims to encourage your child to enjoy their heritage; to increase their motivation to investigate and research; to develop their skills for finding out, understanding and evaluating that information. The multicultural content will also encourage your child to gain tolerance, empathy and social awareness.
We aim to promote your child's enjoyment of art and to allow for the expression of their ideas, thoughts and feelings through a variety of 2 and 3 dimensional media. This will develop the important areas of their visual perception and visual literacy.
We aim that your child's life should be enriched by a range of musical experiences. The music in school will foster your child's sensitivity to and their understanding and enjoyment of music through an active involvement in listening, composing and performing.
