History and Geography
At St. George's Camberwell, we believe that through effective teaching of History and Geography we can foster, in our pupils, secure knowledge and awareness of the world around us. We want to inspire children’s curiosity and fascination about our world and its people so that they can become informed and active citizens. We alternate the teaching of Geography and History each half term to ensure full coverage of the National Curriculum and teachers regularly use assessment tools to inform targeted, high quality planning of these subjects. In both subjects, enquiry is key and children are given opportunities to ask questions and debate viewpoints in order to deepen understanding.
Along side classroom teaching, we also regularly take our pupils on excursions, linked to the topics taught, to reinforce classroom teaching, expand their worldview and create memorable experiences.
