History and Geography

History

We believe history should awaken and sustain a pupil’s curiosity about the past.

This can be local, national or global history.

We feel it is important children understand how the events and people in the past shaped the society and world we live in today.  Then they can understand how our actions today affect the world to come.

We teach our pupils to be historians. They analyse artefacts and carry out their own research. They question what they find out and compare different versions of the same event. Pupils develop a set of skills. They learn to enquire, analyse, interpret and problem solve. All are skills that they will need in life.

Geography

At Brede we provide a high-quality geography education.  This allows children to explore and explain the world around them. We hope to inspire a life-long curiosity and fascination about the world.

Pupils develop an understanding of the interaction between physical and human processes. They learn about the formation and use of landscapes and environments. They discover diverse places, people, resources and natural and human environments. Alongside they learn about the Earth’s key physical and human processes.
