Humanities provides the foundational areas of History and Geography. Recently reviewed to enable a sharper focus on the key skills and knowledge needed to perform in this area at the next phase of their education, Humanities is often the basis of a term's topical learning, in conjunction with science. We are currently developing the use of a concept-led curriculum, as well as 'knowledge organisers' to strengthen and deepen learning in Humanities. This is because not only are these two subjects are filled with facts and figures, but they also encourage critical thinking and reasoning skills, and are an outlet for the most perceptive and personal writing. Watch out for knowledge organisers coming out to you for your child's topic, which will set out really clearly what they will be expected to learn and remember.
