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.




The following examples of work show the growing mapping skills of children from Year 1 to Year 6. In all the examples we have used the school grounds to enhance our learning.
