Through our history teaching we are giving all students a broad and balanced view of the History of Britain and other societies. At Christ the King we intent to improve the cultural capital, understanding of the world and their own heritage through a blocked teaching approach which retrieves and revisits themes such as rulers, houses and conflicts so that children can apply their knowledge to develop their skills as historians and build on their knowledge so that they are able to:
- develop into critical thinkers
- have a secure understanding of past events and their chronological position
- discover connections between different events and how it has affected their local area
- develop their skills of enquiry and gain the confidence to question events of the past
- be able to develop their own opinions and ways of interpreting historical event
Our curriculum aims to be aspiring, motivating and be knowledge rich. We are currently develop the use of knowledge organisers and quizzing to ensure children remember more. We strive to cover a wide range of historical events through the teaching of historical skills. We motivate and excite children through engaging practical activities, trips and visitors while giving children the opportunity to investigate events of the past.

Through our geography teaching we enhance our pupils understanding of the world, from their familiar locality to the strangeness of different biomes, continents, weather patterns and settlements. As they grow older they debate environmental issues concerning parts of our world which are under threat and often the decisions and politics from the past which may have caused those threats. Through our curriculum topics pupils are required to build on previously taught knowledge so that they grow as geographers, revisit and embed concepts and develop skills such as map reading, making connections and critical debating. We are currently developing the use of knowledge organisers and quizzing to help children remember more key facts and knowledge.
Our local area, is on the edge of an area of outstanding natural beauty - the grandeur of the Salisbury plain, the chalk downland of the Cranbourne Chase, the rolling countryside of the New Forest and of course the coast of Dorset. Flooding and the way water meadows are managed along with continual coastal erosion are all on our doorstep. The children have the opportunities to compare provincial cities and villages to the city of London.
