Humanities Statement of Intent
To broaden children's knowledge of the wider world and ignite curiosity of their surroundings.
At Holy Cross, the children take an enquiry based approach to learning in Humanities. This gives them the opportunity to explore around a topic of interest and research information linked to different areas. Children are encouraged to recognise there are multiple sources of History and Geography and share their own opinions of the wider world and what this means for us today.
We aim to bring topic based learning into all aspects of the curriculum. This means the children will be encouraged to use their learning from Humanities across all areas of the curriculum. This could involve some art work based on the Romans, or a myth about the Ancient Greeks. This helps to unite the children's view of the topic and bring it into all aspects of their learning.
