Hatherleigh Community Primary School Caring about learning and learning to care

Humanities

At Hatherleigh Primary School it is our aim that teaching and learning in Geography should inspire our pupils to have a curiosity and fascination about the world and its people. We aim to equip our pupils with knowledge about diverse places, people, resources and natural and human environments, together with a deep understanding of the Earth’s key physical and human processes.

 

It is our aim that teaching and learning in History will help pupils to gain a coherent knowledge and understanding of Britain’s past and that of the wider world. It should inspire pupils’ curiosity to know more about the past. We hope to equip pupils to ask perceptive questions, think critically, weigh evidence, sift arguments, and develop perspective and judgement.

 

Where possible we make meaningful links between our learning in humanities and our learning in many other curriculum areas. We also endeavour to incorporate trips, fieldwork and visitors into our teaching  and learning sequences so that children have first-hand experiences from which they can build upon.
