History and Geography
At Yealmpton, we teach History and Geography in alternating terms. This gives the children the opportunity to investigate three topics in depth throughout the course of the year.
The two subjects are important to children's understanding of the world around them, both now and in the past, and enable them to develop important skills such as research, exploration, data handling and questioning.
Over the course of our rolling programme, children cover topics that range from Ancient Egypt to the seven continents, covering the aims set out in the National Curriculum.
These aims are provided in the attachments below.
