The ‘Our Wonderful World’ curriculum area comprises the subjects of History, Geography, and Languages.

We challenge the children with new experiences from all around the world!  We teach them about our place in the world and to think carefully about how we can protect it for future generations.  We teach them about how diverse our community is and how special this makes us.
