WELCOME TO HUMANITIES

Please look below for information about how we offer children broad and enriching experiences that engage them in learning about the world, their heritage, significant periods of time and significant events.

INTENT

At Linthwaite Ardron, we deliver a high quality humanities curriculum which aims to  inspire in pupils a curiosity and fascination about our locality,  the world and its people.  

IMPLEMENTATION

We deliver a curriculum that is progressive from a pupil starting school in Early Years to leaving at the end of year six. Humanities is taught in half termly blocks that alternate between  geography and history. Our curriculum is delivered through practical activities, wherever possible, to give pupils with all learning styles to love their learning and flourish.  

IMPACT

Pupils will be equipped with knowledge and skills to prepare them for their next steps of leaning and life as an adult in the wider world. Children will also have an interest in their locality and know how significant events and periods of time have shaped the world they live in today.
