At Stoneyholme Primary School, we learn through a topic based curriculum. By developing our skills in these areas, we become the historians and geographers of the future, understanding the spiritual, cultural and moral differences in society.
In Geography we aim to provide opportunities to develop the children's sense of wonder at the beauty and scale of the world. To promote citizenship, we aim to develop children's knowledge and understanding of national, regional, religious and ethnic identities in the UK and the wider world. To enable children to understand the social and cultural influences on their lives, we aim to provide opportunities for children to discuss and reflect upon social, political, economic and environmental issues.
Their learning will include the use of geographical vocabulary, enquiry skills, fieldwork skills, mapping, questioning, use of photographs and the study of places in the UK and the wider world. To ensure the children have a wide range of experiences, trips and visitors are included as often as possible. The outdoor environment and local area around school will be used frequently to embed and increase their subject knowledge.
We follow the Lancashire Syllabus for the teaching of R.E. This year with have established direct links with different places of worship to enable the children to have the richest experience when learning about different religions and their traditions. By having these direct links we hope to:
Strengthen teaching and learning in Religious Education & Citizenship as well as the related Spiritual, Moral, Social, Cultural framework.
Have a deeper understanding of the influence of belief, faith and culture in education and across our community.
Bring together people of all cultures and faiths to grow in respect, understanding and friendship through projects and diversity events.
