At Thornhill Lees Infant and Nursery School through the teaching of humanities (History and Geography) we aim to inspire pupils with a curiosity of the world both past and present.
Our Geography curriculum is designed to develop children’s curiosity and fascination about the world. We are committed to providing children with opportunities to investigate their local area so that they can develop of real sense of who they are, where they live and what makes our local area unique and special. As well as developing an understanding of the world beyond.
Our history curriculum is designed to inspire children to want to know more about the past and to think and act as historians. By linking learning to a range of topics, children have opportunities to investigate and interpret the past, understand chronology, build an overview of Britain’s past as well as that of the wider world, and to be able to communicate historically.
