Many of our projects have a historical or geographical theme. We aim for all our infant children to gain that sense of awe and wonder from building on what they see around them and using rich resources to deepen their knowledge
The projects are relevant, exciting and accessible for all children ensuring that children build on previous knowledge and learn new facts and skills. Children are helped to relate their personal experience to an awareness of the past, present and the future, appreciating the world around them.
We teach history and geography through photos, music, souvenirs, artefacts, looking at books and atlases.
With the school situated at the foot of the South Downs, within just a short walk children can view the Old Town and all of Eastbourne from a high position and see historical and geographical features for themselves. What a great starting point for children to become history spotters and map makers!
