Humanities - History/ Geography/ RE

History

Children are given the opportunity to develop an awareness of the past, and a knowledge of chronology through a series of history topics.

 

Children progressively become aware of the advances through time and their impact, by gathering information from a variety of sources including books, artefacts, interviews and documents.

 

Geography

In our geography work, we aim to enable our children to acquire the skills associated with map work, observation and description of physical features and to undertake fieldwork.

 

Pupils are given opportunities to study places beyond their own locality and how lives are affected by the environment.  They will study rocks, rivers, settlements and weather patterns.

 

Religious Education (R.E.) and Collective Worship

Hampshire's agreed syllabus for R.E. is called "Living Difference".  The aim of R.E. is to encourage the sense of wonder in young children and through knowledge and understanding of religious traditions, including Christianity, to develop an awareness of the spiritual dimensions of life.

 

It is a legal requirement that all children attend assembly and RE unless their parents have exercised their right to withdraw.  Children who are withdrawn will be supervised by a teacher or Learning Support Assistant.
