Social Studies

capturemappingSocial studies include looking at the past, the world around us, society and economics. Much of the work in this area is of a practical nature- learning through doing.

Children and young people as they participate in experiences and outcomes in social studies will:

 develop their understanding of the history, heritage and culture of Scotland, and an appreciation of their local and national heritage within the world
 broaden their understanding of the world by learning about human activities and achievements in the past and present
 develop their understanding of their own values, beliefs and cultures and those of others
 develop an understanding of the principles of democracy and citizenship through experience of critical and independent thinking
 explore and evaluate different types of sources and evidence
 learn how to locate, explore and link periods, people and events in time and place
 learn how to locate, explore and link features and places locally and further afield
 engage in activities which encourage enterprising attitudes
 develop an understanding of concepts that encourage enterprise and influence business
 establish firm foundations for lifelong learning and for further specialised study and careers.
