Why is the West Midlands such a wonderful place to live?
In this history driver, we will be exploring the history and geography curriculum through the local history of our very own West Midlands! As historians, we will progress our chronological knowledge by looking at the history of Halesowen. We will identify similarity and difference between the West Midlands and other locations around the world both historically and culturally (informed through a variety of sources contributing to our knowledge).
Through in-depth study, we will understand the achievements of some of the West Midlands most famous historical figures and how they have impacted our modern world. We will also extend our knowledge of health and fitness by looking at parts of the West Midlands where we can be physically active and eat healthily.
Our geographical skills will also be revisited, progressed and utilised throughout this topic by studying the rivers local to the area and their features.
Through revisiting and progressing our skills and learning, these golden nuggets of knowledge will be embedded in our long term memories!
