At Greenfield Primary School, we will help all children to develop an understanding of time, place, people and events through the effective teaching and learning of the knowledge skills and understanding of history. We will use the National Curriculum History Guidelines as the basis for our scheme of work and we will make meaningful links with the other subjects of the curriculum. Our aim is to ignite a curiosity to learn about the past that will help children understand who they are and how their environment and the world has changed over time.
At Greenfield Primary School, our geography curriculum will inspire in pupils a curiosity and fascination about the world and its people that will remain with them for the rest of their lives. As pupils progress, their growing knowledge about the world will help them to deepen their understanding of the interaction between physical and human processes, and of the formation and use of landscapes and environments. All pupils will benefit from teaching and learning that is based upon the programmes of study for geography which are set out in the National Curriculum.
Black History Week 2020
At Greenfield Primary School, we celebrated Black History Week in October this year. Each class enjoyed learning more about the contributions of different important figures in Black History and the work they have done to inspire so many people around the world, from Barack Obama to Martin Luther King.
Here's a picture of just some of the fantastic art work created by children from Nursery all the way up to Year 6!
Local area week
In the autumn term, every class learnt about a part of our local area and considered why it is important. During this week, classes explored: Uppermill, Greenfield, Huddersfield Canal and Pots and Pans.
