S. Anselm's School

Geography and History

The children in Years 1 and 2 explore a range of topics with geographical and historical content. The children are encouraged to develop a range of skills, to enable them to extend their knowledge and understanding of the world in which they live. These topics are taught usually in blocks of lessons over 2 to 3 weeks. This enables the themes to be a taught in a more cross-curricular manner, often being incorporated in Literacy, Art and Design Technology lessons.

Topics explored in Year 1 include Homes, Toys, School Environment and Weather.

In Year 2 the children study the Seaside, Kenya, Bakewell, Famous People and Events.
