Humanities

History and Geography

Children contribute positively to the future if they have a secure sense of identity and belonging, understand the implications of human activity on the environment, and appreciate that mankind can learn from mistakes made in the past. For this reason, we believe the Humanities - History and Geography specifically – are important subjects that drive children’s minds to learn and take on important issues and facts.

 

Each term, our ‘Unit’ planning explores a key historical or geographical theme. Over the sequence of learning opportunities, we aim to capture a snapshot of pupils' knowledge and understanding as a starting point for developing questioning, thinking and reflection. Often, we begin with familiar ideas which resonate closely with a pupils' personal experience in order to make learning tangible. This is usually in the form of a 'Launch Day' where children 'live' experiences and examine evidence first hand. By the end of an Unit, we aim to have facilitated wider learning so that children have a more global understanding of the concepts being explored.

 

At the end of each Unit, children reflect on the journey of their learning and are assessed as to their long-term memory fluency.
