Topic – History and Geography
At Hampstead Hill School, Topic drives our curriculum and provides strong cross-curricular links. This offers a creative way to develop children’s knowledge, skills and understanding, and motivates them to learn through stimulating, interconnected topics.
Our broad, balanced, sequential and language rich History Curriculum aims to stimulate children’s curiosity and interest in the past. This will foster a deeper understanding of British, local and world history and build connections to help them understand society and their place within it to develop a sense of identity and belonging. Our intention is to develop the essential knowledge and skills in key aspects of history including – developing a secure chronological understanding, the acquisition of historical language, historical enquiry and interpretation.
Our curriculum strives to ensure a non-biased view of our History to promote mutual respect for diverse perspectives, contributions, and cultures. This will be promoted by making strong links with our school values and fundamental British values to ensure children become well-rounded individuals who are prepared for the opportunities, responsibilities, and experiences of later life.
The intention of the Geography Curriculum at Hampstead Hill School is to spark curiosity and wonder in our pupils about the world. We aim to inspire children to explore who they are, through the place they live in and evoke a passion to discover the wider world. Our curriculum provides learning opportunities both in and outside the classroom. Through high quality teaching of locational knowledge, place knowledge, human and physical features and fieldwork skills, we hope to give children experiences that will set them up to be responsible, citizens.
Geography makes important links to our school values by providing opportunities for children to develop their understanding and resolving issues about the environment and sustainable development; respecting and caring for their local and global community.
