Humanities

At Immanuel, we aim to give our children a humanities curriculum which enables them to become confident, creative and independent learners who can explore the use of different knowledge and skills throughout topic learning. We seek to broaden children’s real-life experiences both inside and outside of school through educational visits, visitors, experimentation, exploration and discovery. Within lessons, our children acquire a range of knowledge and skills in both history and geography which they can then apply to other subjects and in a variety of situations.

Furthermore, it is our aim that through historical and geographical learning, children will become accountable citizens, understanding their role in protecting our world and environment and knowing how they can cause positive change and development as they grow.

Across the course of a year, each year group studies a variety of humanities topics. These are a mixture of history and geography and are linked to writing, art and design technology. Links between subjects give children a broad base of knowledge, facts, vocabulary, real-life experience and contexts to use for learning.
