Through Social Studies, children develop understanding of the world by learning about other people and their values in different times, places and circumstances. Children across the P1-P7 stage will be encouraged to learn about their environment and develop an understanding of how it was formed. Pupils will experience learning opportunities within Scottish, British and European contexts of learning. Teachers will also engage children in lessons which explore how historical, social, geographic, economic and political changes have influenced Scotland.
The social studies experiences and outcomes have been structured under three main categories. These are:
People, past events and societies
People, place and environment
People in society, economy and business
