Glasgow City Council Welcome to Dunard Primary School & Nursery Class

Social Studies

A key aim of this curricular area is to broaden children’s understanding of the world.

Children will follow a structured programme of progressive skill development largely delivered through 'contexts' relevant and appropriate to children’s needs and interests, with experiences and outcomes structured in 3 lines of development:  

  • People, past events and societies
  • People, place and environment 
  • People in society, economy and business

The learning and teaching programme aims to offer balance across each of these.

Social Studies topics may also provide a context for teaching and learning in other curricular areas, and the transfer and application of discretely taught skills. Assessment will be continuous.
