Geography and History
At Laddingford, we recognise that Geography and History are richly interconnected subjects. Each quarter children focus on either a History or Geography topic. In Key Stage One this is a two year rolling programme of content, and in Key Stage Two a four year rolling programme of content. This allows all children in a Key Stage to be learning about the same topic at the same time, whilst also ensuring full coverage of the requirements of the National Curriculum. It creates a unique situation where children from separate ends of the school can teach each other things because of the different angles or areas of a subject they've covered.
At the end of each topic, we have a learning fair where parents and carers can come in and see the work and learning that the children have been involved in.
