Geography & History

At the St Thomas a Becket C of E Federation, our ambitious history curriculum intends to develop knowledgeable pupils keen to progress with the next steps of their learning.  Pupils will be equipped with a sense of chronology on a local, regional, national and international scale.  Pupils will apply their knowledge to help them understand how events and individuals in the past have shaped the today, using evidence critically, to piece together a coherent narrative.   Common historical curriculum concepts and Christian values will help all pupils make links between the themes they study and spot similarities and differences.  Trips, visitors, literature and the arts collaborate takes all pupils’ learning on a rich journey through the past.
