History

At Mangotsfield, history isn’t just about learning facts about the past. Instead, it a discipline that involves using and developing certain skills in order to investigate the past as ‘time detectives’. Throughout their journey at Mangotsfield, pupils learn how to become historians. 

Our history curriculum exceeds the national curriculum and is designed to provide a framework to inspire our learners’ curiosity about the past - including Britain and the wider world. Our history curriculum enables the acquisition of essential substantive and disciplinary knowledge. In turn, pupils learn to ask critical questions, weigh evidence and develop perspective and judgement in order to understand the complexity of people’s lives, different processes of change and the diversity of societies. Our history curriculum is concisely catagorised into four main composite blocks: chronology; sources; change; comparison.

 

Geography

Throughout their journey at Mangotsfield, pupils learn how to become geographers.

Our Geography curriculum is designed to provide a framework to inspire our learners’ curiosity and fascination about the world and its people that will remain with them for the rest of their lives. Our curriculum enables the acquisition of essential substantive and disciplinary knowledge to provide a gateway to explain how the Earth’s features at different scales are shaped, interconnected and change over time.  Our geography curriculum is concisely catagorised into three composite blocks: location; field work; human and physical geography.
