At The Crescent we focus our Geography teaching and skill coverage, through the International Primary Curriculum (IPC). Every year group chooses a new unit of work each half term through which Geography is taught. Opportunities for children to explore their new learning is encouraged through class visits each half term..

For example

In year 2 topics include ‘from A to B ‘, focusing on transport and travel in different countries and includes a visit to the Transport museum.

Year 4 topics include ‘Chocolate’ focusing on where chocolate comes from and how it gets to Britain also including a trip to the Chocolate museum.


A high-quality history education will help pupils gain a coherent knowledge and understanding of Britain’s past and that of the wider world. It should inspire pupils’ curiosity to know more about the past. Teaching should equip pupils to ask perceptive questions, think critically, weigh evidence, sift arguments, and develop perspective and judgement. History helps pupils to understand the complexity of people’s lives, the process of change, the diversity of societies and relationships between different groups, as well as their own identity and the challenges of their time.

History is taught through International Primary Curriculum (IPC) topics across each year group.  The IPC provides key learning goals, which we use to help plan a varied and exciting curriculum for the children. 

During their time at The Crescent, children learn how:

  • To gather information from a variety of sources (including books, video, internet, drama and role play, visiting speakers and trips).
  • To understand how particular aspects of history have impacted on present day.
  • To make connections and draw conclusions between significant historical events.
  • To place events, people and changes into chronological order and consider how these changes have affected the wider world.
  • To understand a wide range of historical vocabulary.
  • To describe and identify reasons for and results of historical events.
  • History affects lives of people in the present.
