History and Geography

Subject Leaders: Rebecca Shand

SMSC in Geography at Kennington CE Academy

History and Geography are taught within Kennington C of E Academy as enquiry led subjects where children are encouraged to question the world around us now and in the past.

In Geography, we use key geographical skills and observation to derive and answer questions about the human and physical features of the world around us. This allows children to investigate change in the environment and compare different locations in the world with our own local area.

Our Geography Geniuses 

Our Geography Geniuses support the children and teachers. Their role includes:

  • helping to collect pupil voice
  • supporting children in Geography lessons
  • assisting class teachers with any preparation needed for the lesson
  • thinking of new ways to promote Geography in the school

Mediterranean Day Year Three

Last year, Year Three learnt all about different countries in Europe and got to taste Italian, Spanish and Greek food as well as learn traditional dances and facts about each country.


Subject Leader: Mrs F Brace

In History, we explore the key eras and events, which have helped to shape our societies today, by seeking answers and questioning evidence. We always give the children opportunities to study and wonder about what has happened in the past and how this influences us today. We try and teach the topics in a chronological order, starting with The Stone Age in Year 3. This is designed to enable the children to understand the timeline of British and World History and move forward in time as they move up through the school.

Some of the topics that Children can look forward to learning are:

Stone Age

Ancient Egyptians

Ancient Greeks

The Romans

The Anciant Mayans

The Saxons

The Vikings

The Tudors and Stewarts
