History & Geography

During the course of the academic year, all children in years 1-6, develop and nurture their knowledge, skills and understanding of History via their integration in a balanced scheme of coverage and in line with the expectations outlined in the National Curriculum.
In both History and Geography we currently use the  "Kapow" scheme of work. This provides a wide range of opportunities for the children to develop their historical and geographical skills throughout their school life. 



Throughout EYFS (Nursery and Reception classes), History and Geography concepts are taught as a part of their Understanding the World curriculum. It is woven throughout themes they choose to follow.

See the above documents for further details.


Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2

The above overview shows which topics are covered within each year group and when, and also a brief overview of the skills covered.



Black Country Day

Brickhouse Primary School is proud to be a part of the Black Country, an area of the West Midlands. It became industrialised during its role as one of the birth places of the Industrial Revolution across the English Midlands with coal mines, coking, iron foundries, glass factories, brickworks and steel mills, producing a high level of air pollution.

Each Year, on the 14th July we celebrate Black Country day, a chance to explore our unique dialect (Lenny Henry will demonstrate!) and what is the history of the Black Country.
