History and Geography

IMG-2713.jpg
We use the Learning Challenge Curriculum in Adswood Primary and
tailor the topics so they link to our local area of Stockport.

Sticky Knowledge is used throughout KS1 and
KS2 to ensure coverage.

Learning follows a clear sequence in each year group and throughout
school. Learning is chronological to ensure objectives are revisited and
learning consolidated.

Our History and Geography lessons are planned from our yearly
overviews. SODAs then allow pupils to bridge back and revisit learning but also to bridge forward
and explore learning that will be covered next academic year.

 OFSTED inspection in November 2019 -

'at Adswood Primary the teaching of History and Geography is inclusive through quality first teaching'.

 We  follow an inclusive program of SODA activities created by the lead and our EAL lead to
incorporate more diverse and inclusive History into our school.


We have had exciting VVE opportunities where History and Geography learning out of school is
enhanced. 


History and Geography offer great opportunities for extended writing which can link to LCC
topics or to VVE activities. Book looks and work watches have also shown great examples of
cross curricular learning using art and drama. There are also great opportunities to use our local
area for fieldwork.

 

We are proud of our links to our local area.

 As a whole school in the summer term we focus on the question: What is so ‘Great’
about Greater Manchester? We use this topic to celebrate the amazing cultural, technological
and artistic contributions Greater Manchester has made to the wider world. We have also taken
part in a number of projects with local organisations such as Bamford Grange Care Home
through a time capsule project and The Stockport Veterans Association through a project all
about the D-Day landings.
