At Broadwater, we teach the foundation subjects of History, Geography and Design & Technology through our exciting Discovery Curriculum. Each term has a different theme and has been designed to help children learn the essential knowledge, skills and understanding for each of these subjects, as set out in the National Curriculum of 2014.
We structure it in the following way:
Autumn: ‘We are Historians’
Spring: ‘We are Geographers’
Summer: ‘We are Innovators’
Each topic starts with a WOW moment and leads to a meaningful end of term celebration of learning. Purposeful and relevant links are made to other curriculum areas and the texts the children read as part of the English curriculum have been carefully mapped.
Each topic has a 'Learning Journey' which shows the progression of the learning as well as a Knowledge Organiser that contains key facts and vocabulary your child will learn. To read these, please click on your child's class page.
