History and Geography
At King Offa Primary Academy, children learn about History and Geography (the humanities) through our AAT curriculum. Our AAT curriculum is something that is unique to schools within the Aurora Academies Trust (AAT). It is a humanities-based curriculum that takes children on a journey through time from ancient history up to the modern day. There are six units a year that build upon each other to give children a strong understanding of how ideas and discoveries throughout history have been formed. There is a strong moral and ethical focus within the AAT curriculum which teaches children to be inquisitive, open minded and aware of the impact of great cultures throughout history. Because the AAT curriculum takes pupils on a journey around the globe, there are ample opportunities for pupils to develop their geographical understanding.
Parents and families are invited into school to explore and celebrate what the children have been learning about.
Each unit is based around a key question that hooks the children into the learning. children develop the knowledge and understanding to be able to answer.
