National Curriculum

Historical, geographical and social understanding

Importance

Historical, geographical and social understanding fires children’s curiosity and imagination about who we are, where we have come from, where we live and where we might be going next. It connects Britain’s past with the present and the future, helps children make sense of our place in the world and is central to their development as informed, active and responsible citizens.
