Through a broad and balanced curriculum that is proudly promoted throughout school, our children have the opportunities to study, investigate and explore a variety of history and geography topics across KS1 and KS2, as well as through Understanding of the World in EYFS. Creative opportunities for cross curricular activities encourage our children to be immersed in their Humanities topics, inspiring them to ask big questions about the world around them. With a strong focus on our local area, through history and geography topics our children are encouraged to explore who they are, understand their community and the changes it has been through, and celebrate these. Humanities topics are high profile throughout school and our welcoming environment showcases our children’s hard work and collaboration through displays. Humanities in our school encourages our children to investigate other cultures across the world and compare them to our own.
