Belmont Primary School

  • 'Belmont has always struck the right balance between academia and learning for life.'
    Parent
  • 'A school that doesn't just excel at the academics but provides so much more, whether its music lessons and the lunchtime choir, or the 350 spaces in clubs each week, the football and netball teams or the shows that raise the roof of the top hall.'
    Parent Governor

Geography and History

 

Both Geography and History are taught through our topic based curriculum from Year 1 to Year 6.  We aim to give children an enthusiasm for these subjects which they will carry through their whole lives.   Skills in both History and Geography are taught progressively across the school, within engaging contexts and focused study, where children are able to make links between areas of learning and develop their knowledge and understanding in a coherent way.  The children learn aspects of Geography and History relating both to Britain and to the wider world.  Both subjects are supported by visits and fieldwork locally or further afield and the School benefits from its proximity to London historical sites and museums and the River Thames, which enable pupils to learn from primary sources and first-hand experiences.   The Curriculum is further enriched  through interactive workshops brought into school, often involving role play so that children are able to explore ideas in more depth.
