History 

“I believe that the more you know about the past, the better you are prepared for the future.”
~ Theodore Roosevelt

History provides identity. Studying history improves our decision making and judgement. It teaches us how to learn from the mistakes of others. History helps us understand change and how society has developed. 

Here at St Michael’s we value and encourage looking at the past with curiosity and questioning eyes. Children develop and enhance their understanding through looking at artefacts, journals, newspaper cuttings and research using electronic media. Our aim is to enhance children’s reasoning skills by analysing and discussing findings through active research using various sources.

            

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Geography 

 

The aim of Geography within St Michael's is to introduce the pupils to the wonder and diversity of the world we live in.  We aim to develop their love and respect for the natural world and encourage them to act with integrity towards it.  Our motto (Seek Joy in Service) can be extended to apply to serving the natural world.  Once inspired and motivated, our pupils will become The Leaders of Tomorrow and lead others in the correct guardianship of our world and its resources. ​​​
