‘A people without the knowledge of their past history, origin and culture is like a tree without roots.’ 

Marcus Garvey 

Our history curriculum stimulates curiosity, independent thinking and provides children with a rich knowledge base, promoting diversity and equality of British history and the history of the wider world around them.  Our aim is to help the children to know more and remember more about the past, the significant events and people and how these have shaped the way we live our lives today. It is designed in a coherent way so that children can explore the different interpretations of the past. This will  allow them to become even more effective historians, developing their use of questioning, interpreting evidence from a range of sources and developing judgements based upon their findings.  We endeavour to help children understand the complexities of people’s lives , the diversity of societies and the relationships between different groups. As well as reflecting on their own identity and challenges they may face over time. 

Geography underpins a lifelong “Conversation” about earth as the home of humankind” 

Geography association 

At St George’s  we want to  inspire children’s curiosity and interest to explore the world that we live in and its people, which aims to ignite a love of learning. We intend to equip children with geographical skills to develop their knowledge through studying places, people and natural and human environments. This seeks to deepen the understanding of the Earth’s human and physical forms and processes. Geography, by nature, is an investigative subject. Through our teaching, we intend to provoke thought, questions and to encourage children to discover answers to their own questions through exploration and research to enable them to gain a greater understanding and knowledge of the world and their place in it.  Our aim is to develop their knowledge of people’s attitudes, values and beliefs and how these influence our decisions as future citizens  and our responsibility in the environment  and world we live in. We are committed to providing children with opportunities to investigate and make enquiries about the local area of Toddington so they can develop a sense of who they are, their heritage and what makes their local area unique and special. 

“To learn a language is to have one more window with which to view the world.”

Chinese proverb

We aim through our Modern Foreign Languages curriculum at Toddington St George to develop an excitement and thirst for languages. 

To enable our children to celebrate and welcome both the similarities and differences in our world, it is vital they have an understanding of different languages and countries. By introducing and exposing our children to this they will have a deepened ability to show respect and play a valuable part in our global society. 

At St Georges we aim to introduce the learning of the French language and the understanding of its culture in enjoyable and stimulating ways and also to celebrate the range and variety of languages within our own school.

We hope to embed the essential early communication skills of listening, speaking, reading and writing and inspire a love of language in our children as an essential part of their lifelong journey of learning.
