our approach to ks1 and ks2 geography and History
Our vision is to raise the profile of geography and history in primary schools.
We aim to help you, as teachers, to nurture the enthusiastic, knowledgeable geographers and historians of the future, and inspire your pupils to be curious about the world, both past and present.
We do this by helping teachers like yourself deliver an outstanding curriculum, that meets the requirements of the National Curriculum and ensures skill progression. With our many years of teaching experience and passion for our subjects, why not work with us to create a special and unique curriculum for your school!?
Our keys to the National Curriculum offer a scheme of work, that supports the teaching of geography and history.
On each key, you’ll find everything you need to teach the subject area you’ve chosen, including objective links, subject information, activities, worksheets, maps, images and PowerPoint presentations, as well as learning outcomes.
A sample of the planning document you'll receive for each key is below, detailing what the pupils will learn and resources provided:

In addition to our primary geography and history keys, we are also happy to develop units unique to your school and locality – a service that sets us apart from other primary humanities suppliers.
This could be:
local key units based on My School, My School Grounds, the Surrounding Environment, and Fieldwork Skills and Practice for Key Stage 1 Geography
individualised Local Area units for Key Stage 2 Geography
units based on significant people, places or events linked to your local area for Key Stage 1 History
local area history for Key Stage 2 History
Equally, we can devise a whole Humanities curriculum for you, within which each subject has its distinct place.
I'm thrilled I reached out to B&C Educational for help with our geography curriculum.
Our geography curriculum is now looking professional: compliant, progressive and sequenced.
It is fully resourced and ready to deliver.
