Geography is taught through an enquiry approach, which enables the children to develop an awareness of the world around them, and the people who live in it. Children are taught about their locality and localities outside their immediate area. They are also taught about the influences that man has on the environment and the influences that the environment has on man. Geographical skills and fieldwork form an important part of the subject.

History is taught to enable the children to develop an awareness and knowledge of how the past influences the present, what past societies were like and how their beliefs and cultures influenced people’s actions. As they do this, they will learn historical skills and the themes of interpretation, continuity and change. They will also develop a chronological framework for their knowledge of significant events and people. Visits to places of historical interest may be arranged.
