SOCIAL STUDIES / SCIENCES / TECHNOLOGIES
Subjects such as Geography, History, Science and Technology are included in these areas. It is the task of the school to build on the knowledge and experience of the world which our children already have, so that they may acquire an understanding of our environment and develop positive attitudes to it. Substantial use is made of film clips and computer software to enhance the pupils’ knowledge of what they cannot experience at first hand. Whenever possible visits are made to museums, galleries, historical sites, field trips and the local area to support these areas of the curriculum.
At all stages a wide range of reference books and other materials are available, either in school or borrowed from the School Library Service or local libraries. All classes have access to the Internet and children are encouraged to do research tasks to seek particular information.
