Through social studies, children and young people develop their understanding of the world by learning about other people and places both past and present, societies, their beliefs and values. This area of the curriculum involves the children learning about the world in which they live. Within Social Studies children learn about and acquire skills under the following headings: People past events and societies, People in society, economy and business, People place and the environment.
We provide our pupils with a wide variety of activities to teach the various skills. While children are engaged in their topics, visits are paid to places to enhance experiential learning such as libraries, the local health centre, churches, mosques, police station, fire station, local parks, museums, Science Centre and theatres.
Enterprise Education is a strong feature of the school. This involves the children in taking responsibility for fundraising, organising an event or providing a service. This ensures that children learn important skills for life and truly understand the value of working with others.
