At St Augustine's, History and Geography are fundamental to our wider curriculum, offering pupils the opportunities to learn about the locality in which they live as well as the world beyond them in both a historical and geographical sense. Our aim is to provide an education in Humanities that inspires a curiosity to know more about the world and its people from the past as well as the here and now. To have a deeper understanding of how and where people live and why this is so, helps our children to appreciate the diversity of our world and develop their own perspectives and judgements over time. We have a strong focus on enquiry skills so our children become equipped with a solid foundation on which to build so they are 'secondary ready' when it is time to say goodbye to St Augustine's.
First World War Centenary
Our children have commemorated the centenary of the end of the First World War. We have read poetry, researched local war heroes, created beautiful art and much more. Most importantly, our children had the opportunity to say 'thankyou' to all the service men, women and animals who gave their lives so we can live the life we have today. Taking part in local remembrance services in our locality was a wonderful end to our learning.
