Humanities

We encourage children to develop their knowledge of people and places by looking at the local areas and issues as well as those in the wider world. Maps, atlases, photos and the Internet are common sights in geography-based lessons. They use them to find out about cities, countries, mountain ranges, rivers seas and oceans. Children use their skills that they have developed in ICT, literacy and numeracy to present their findings. First hand experiences of geography are also encouraged.

In History lessons, teachers encourage children to develop their knowledge of the past by exploring a wide range of sources such as artefacts, photographs, books and the internet. Through history, children learn to compare and contrast, find out why things have changed as well as research historical characters and places. Our aim is for children to understand what it was like to live in the past and compare this to what it is like today.
