Throughout using a clearly mapped chronology from Year 1 to Year 6. Children will be able to apply knowledge from previous periods in history and look for patterns and similarities. They will be able to place different time periods sequentially and develop a conceptual understanding of how our world has evolved over time.

Children will have knowledge about their immediate environment in Year 1 and then progress further across the world as they move through to Year 6. They will be able to name the seas, continents and key landmarks and they will contrast and compare using prior facts from previous years. Children will identify the human and physical features that build up our world and recognise similarities and differences between countries.
