Our vision for humanities is for children…
- To have a broad range of experiences which give them the cultural capital to understand our diverse world as it was, is now and as it will be.
- To understand their role as global citizens and also the impact of geographical changes, in particular through high quality fieldwork.
- To develop a curiosity about historical events and sources of evidence, valuing how this impacts life today.
Across the years groups we have planned a range of interesting topics in both History and Geography to ensure good progression and also allow a broad range of skills to be taught and practised.
