History! History! History! History! History! History! History!
At Brough Primary School we have always aimed to deliver an exciting topic-led curriculum, with many of our topics being Geography or History based. All of our topics are taught with a cross-curricular approach so what may be mainly a History topic, such as WW2 in Year 5, will also have elements of Geography teaching. Within this topic, for example, the children learn about the historical events of the war alongside the geographical locations. There will also be links to other subjects such as Literacy, Mathematics, Art and Computing. We believe that delivering the different subjects in this way helps the children to gain a broader understanding and allows them to become fully immersed in, and inspired by, a topic.
To mark the start of a new topic each year group holds “Launch Days”. These may involve the children dressing up or perhaps going on a trip or a special visitor may come into school. It is not unusual to see a whole year group of children, and staff, walking around school dressed as Romans or Ancient Greeks for the day!
