Humanities Vision

Our vision is for humanities learning to develop independence and skills for life-long learning. These skills include asking questions, finding information, sharing ideas and understanding other people’s feelings, viewpoints and experiences. We strive to inspire curiosity and fascination about the world and its people. We aim to equip pupils with knowledge about diverse places, people and environments, teaching children about locational knowledge, place knowledge, human and physical geography and geographical skills and fieldwork. Children will be inspired to explore and investigate their world beyond school life, recognising the wealth of opportunities available beyond their immediate location. By exposing our learners to the best that has been thought and said, we aim to broaden their horizons and raise their potential.

Our curriculum is taught through engaging lessons, carefully linked to other curricular areas. Lessons aim to be inspiring, inclusive and imaginative in order to create successful learners who will develop a lifelong love for learning. Lessons can include drawing, object handling, drama, photography or writing. Where possible, children are given first-hand experiences.

We aim to use our high-quality computing education to enable pupils to develop and use computational thinking and creativity to understand and change the world. This links to other curriculum areas in which we are able to apply online research skills, such as finding out about key historical events and people, or exploring the world through digital maps and photography. They will develop the ability to use technology purposefully to create, organise, store manipulate and retrieve digital content. Children are taught to develop, review and adapt algorithms, creating and debugging simple programs.

We recognise the importance of giving children an appreciation and understanding of the uses and dangers of online technology, enabling them to know how to keep themselves safe online (e-safety). Our aim is to ensure that our learners will be able to use the internet safely and begin to take responsibility for their own digital safety.
