History and Geography
At St Joseph’s our aim is to promote a love and curiosity of the history of the world thatGod gave us and the people in it, through hands on investigations.
We want to instil a love of history and the past in all our children, and work hard to provide an interesting and varied curriculum that will interest and intrigue our children while meeting the eeds of all backgrounds, cultures and abilities.
From EYFS to the end of KS2, the children will be taught about various historical events and famous historical figures, some of which have shaped the world today.
We also relish every opportunity to link History to other subjects.
Our history leader is Mrs Davies.
"I love leading and teaching History because it enables the children to learn about the great men and women of the past, both the good and bad.
Through discussions we learn about their characters, their likes, their dislikes, their strengths and weaknesses, but also what caused some of them to become the heroes and the villains of history.
I love the fact that History promotes discussion, and everyone has a strong opinion!
Teaching History isn’t just about teaching our children facts and dates, but about creating well-rounded, tolerant citizens of the future.
At St Joseph’s our aim is to promote a love and curiosity of the World that God gave us and the people in it, through hands on investigations, exploration, discussion and a breadth of enriching experiences.
The geography curriculum at St. Joseph’s enables children to develop knowledge and skills that are transferable to other curriculum areas and we aim to reinforce both our Christian and British Values through this subject, empowering our pupils' development as effective learners and good citizens.
We aim for them to have a deep understanding of diverse places, people, resources and natural and human environments, together with a secure understanding of the Earth’s key physical and human processes.
Our Geography leader is also Mrs Davies.
"As a leader and teacher of geography I love that the subject helps children develop their understanding of the environment, the natural world, modified landscapes and the social environment.
