Topic-history and geography
Topic is a very important part of the curriculum at Cherry Hinton. It is taught in a cross-curricular way as possible, with links made to writing, Art, DT and Music. Topic has a history or geography focus and always has a question that needs to be answered. For example, 'Were the Maya chocoholic geniuses or bloodthirsty rulers?' 'What was so great about The Great Fire of London?'
Through topic, children have the opportunity to evaluate our school values in action and to learn according to our school motto:
Our School Values are: Agape, Courage, Thankfulness
Our School Motto is: Inquisitive Thinkers; Inspired Learners; Kind Hearts
Topic is also used to inspire writing and deepen vocabulary - topic linked trips and visits are regularly planned for this to happen and to deepen children's answers of the topic questions.
