At St Maria Goretti, we pride ourselves in our topic based curriculum that incorporates all subjects, especially history and geography. Children are given opportunities to explore historical eras to compare life then and now. We bring this to life by using artefacts and local studies to develop an understanding of our own society and how it fits in with the rest of the world. Visits are arranged to give the children first hand experiences that they will remember for years to come, and to give them an understanding of the world around them. Geographical skills are enhanced using ordnance survey, aerial, topographical and political maps, and fieldwork is incorporated where possible. We link humanities to core curriculum areas as much as possible, and in this way, children gain a deeper understanding of the world they live in.
