Humanities at St Jude’s is primarily covered through our vast selection of interesting, engaging and creative topics!
Children are encouraged to study these from a first-hand perspective, gaining practical and memorable experiences, in order to embed their learning.
In History, our children explore and investigate how the past has shaped our future.
We aim to ensure every child has a secure understanding of the chronology of British, local and world history by the end of Key Stage Two.
The children learn to use a variety of historical sources, including pictures, photographs, documents and artefacts, to find out about the past.
We ensure there are ample opportunities for the children to present their learning, using a range of appropriate historical vocabulary.
In Geography, children are inspired to be curious and fascinated by the world around them. Our teaching develops their knowledge and understanding of diverse environments, and physical and human processes.
We teach the children to use a range of skills to locate, observe and measure the geography in their local community and beyond!
Humanities at St Jude’s is enhanced by half termly educational visits, organised by the teachers, to museums, galleries, religious sites, parks, rivers, and many more!
These visits are linked intelligently to the topics they are studying and reinforce skills across the curriculum.
Focus events and days are also held throughout the year to highlight topical issues, and bring the school community together.
Family Learning Projects, the Brazilian Carnival, and the Talent Bank of parents sharing their skills, were a fantastic way of getting involved with the children’s learning last year. They also encouraged the children to practise their skills even more!
We also hold Crafternoons which link to our topics – so even our parents can get involved with creating something wonderful with their children!
