Brookhurst Primary School
A place to think and grow

History & Geography

At Brookhurst we want children to learn about the world in which they live in today and how the past helped to shape that world.


We encourage children to enjoy studying the past and to work as ‘historical detectives’ by using primary and secondary resources to develop the skills of inference and deduction. We take part in living history projects both in school and out. Participation and first hand experience are the keys to producing lifelong historians.


To understand the world in which they live, children explore their environment from local to global; from school to community; from Britain to the world.
