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.
