At Sherington the Humanities curriculum aims to inspire in pupils a curiosity and fascination about the world and its people. Our high quality programmes of study have been developed to provide pupils with a comprehensive knowledge of Britain’s past and develop their understanding of significant locations in the wider world and key events in world history.
The programmes of study for Humanities at Sherington have been designed to equip pupils with the skills to ask perceptive questions, think critically, weigh evidence and develop a rounded perspective and judgement.
As well as studying and learning about the wider world and significant historical events the children’s learning will be centred around the school’s locality, which provides a rich and varied landscape for the children to explore and learn from. Using the local environment will enable the children to learn through direct experience and first hand investigation as well as placing their learning in a personal context. As they progress through the school, pupils will become more aware of the process of change, the diversity of societies as well developing a greater understanding of their own identity.
At Sherington Primary School Humanities provides an excellent stimulus for cross curriculum activities and provides the link for many different learning opportunities. At Sherington pupils learn about different environments and historical events through a varied and creative range of activities from Art, Drama, Poetry, ICT and Design Technology. The Humanities curriculum at Sherington aims to encourage a life long enthusiasm for learning about the world and its diversity in all pupils.
