History & Geography at Frant

History and Geography (or topic lessons) at Frant School aim to be engaging and spark curiosity in our pupils, allowing them to explore the world we live in, both past and present.  We aim for learning to be hands on and allow children to explore and immerse themselves in the topics that they are learning. 

Geography Skills

Skills and fieldwork:

This includes learning how to interpret a range of sources of information such as maps, atlases, globes and photographs to describe and locate features and areas studied. 


Location knowledge:

Children are taught to locate globally significant places such as continents, countries and oceans and understand geographical similarities and differences through contrasting case studies such as a location in the UK compared to another in the world. Children are also encouraged to explore atlases and maps. 


Human and physical geography:

In order to draw comparisons between areas, children research human features of locations such as settlements, trade and areas we live in as well as looking at physical features such as mountains, rivers, volcanoes and climate zones.
