Geography

Geography is the study of places, the human and physical processes which shape them, and the people who live in them. Through the study of geography we want to encourage our children to take a keen interest in the world around them enabling them to develop their environmental and social awareness, and inspiring them to be good world citizens. Skills developed through the study of geography help pupils to gain a greater understanding of the ways of life and cultures of other people and places. The children will learn to develop their geographical knowledge through enquiry, decision making and problem solving. 

History

The study of history helps to develop children’s curiosity about the past. By exploring and understanding how and why Britain and the wider world has developed over time, our children can begin to understand how the past influences the present. History enables our children to develop a chronological framework for their knowledge of significant events and people. At Hullavington our principle aim is to stimulate the children’s curiosity in order for them to develop their knowledge, skills and understanding. History is real and therefore it is important we give our children the opportunities to learn history through a wide range of activities such as handling artefacts, questioning, taking on the role of experts, D&T, writing, discussion, role-play and school trips. History enables our children to develop a context of their growing sense of identity. What they learn through history can undoubtedly have some influence in their personal choices, attitudes and values in life. 

Personal, Social and Health Education

Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE) is concerned with the personal development of children. It equips children with the skills and attitudes needed to lead a confident, healthy and responsible life. PSHE is a subject with non-statutory guidelines. We firmly believe PSHE is taught by example, in the way that we speak, behave and respond to others. The school timetables a weekly PSHE lesson, often taught through Circle time addressing specific needs of the class as well as following the Wiltshire ‘Learn4Life’ scheme. Hullavington Primary has achieved the Wiltshire Healthy Schools Bronze Award.
