Through Social Studies, children develop their understanding of the world by learning about other people and their values, in different times, places and circumstances. The organisers for Social studies are:-
People, Place and Environment
People, Past Events and Societies
People, Society, Economy and Business
Social Studies are taught throughout the school and nursery. We begin at the early stages with pupils relating to their experience of their immediate environment and move on to extend their knowledge and understanding of their local environment which then grows to encompass other places and other times thus pointing pupils to Scottish, British, European and global dimensions. Pupils are encouraged to develop informed attitudes and values relating to the care and conservation of the environment.
