Curriculum CPD – History & Geography

Enhancing Cultural Diversity Provision in History and Geography: EYFS – Year 6

Led by David Weatherly


Two-thirds of today’s UK babies will live to see the next century and one in three will celebrate their 100th birthday. At the same time the cultural mix of the communities in which they will grow up are becoming increasingly ethnically diverse. In this context the day is a timely and valuable opportunity for colleagues to reflect upon how their current provision and everyday practice supports children to investigate beyond the familiar and build an understanding of cultural diversity, both in terms of its historic legacy and contemporary richness within their own local communities, in Britain as a whole and in the wider world.

Key elements of the day will include:

  • Understanding the terms ‘culture’ and ‘cultural diversity’;
  • Comprehending the breadth of cultural diversity within Britain today;
  • Reviewing their current provision in History and Geography in the context of the above;
  • Identifying how they might approach strengthening cultural inclusion in History and Geography in relation to their curriculum, learning environments and pedagogical practice;
  • Considering examples of historical and geographical enquiries in History and Geography that seek to recognise the contributions and achievements of diverse cultures locally and globally.
