Humanities

At the core of our curriculum is the belief that children learn better when their interests and fascinations are allowed to flourish, they are given opportunities to develop a secure sense of identity, belonging and connectedness with the past. The delivery of the Humanities subjects (History and Geography) are intrinsic to and woven through our curriculum Projects for every year group.
 

History - Our history curriculum aims to inspire our pupils’ curiosity to know more about the past. History helps pupils to understand the process of change, the diversity of societies as well as their own identity and the challenges of their time.

Our history curriculum will equip the children to ask perceptive questions, think critically, weigh evidence, sift arguments and develop perspective and judgment.

Geography - We believe it is important to provide ‘Living Geography’ concerned with children’s lives, their futures and their world. Through our curriculum our aim is for children to develop a sense of their world at the local, national and global scales understanding the interconnections between how people and the environment interact. Fieldwork is an essential part of this and every child will have a half term of forest school linked to their termly project. Pupils learn to think critically, think spatially, use maps, visual images and new technologies, including geographical information systems to analyse and present information. They will have an adept understanding of their responsibilities within their own society whist also having a coherent insight into sustainability of a dynamically changing world.
