History & Geography

Our Vision: At Cannon Lane children enjoy learning history and geography, whereby exciting cross curricular links are made to other subjects, and regular school excursions help inspire and engage them. 


Pupils learn about the environment, lives and lifestyles of familiar people in the recent past and about famous people and events from further back in history, with a key focus on those that have impacted Britain. Children actively study the local features and extend their learning outside their local area to other parts of the UK. Geographical skills such as: use of maps and coordinates, atlas work, observations about the weather, climate and outdoor field work, prepares children with a sense of empathy and responsibility towards their own environment.




All children should be provided with opportunities and encouraged to:


  • Develop interest and curiosity about their surroundings – on a local, national and global scale.
  • See their place in a changing society both environmentally and historically.
  • Develop a sense of responsibility towards the environment.
  • Develop children’s respect for the difference between nations, cultures and historical development.
