At Coppetts Wood, we aim to deliver a humanities curriculum that inspires our pupils to ask perceptive questions about the wider world, and give them the skill set to become empathetic, accountable, global citizens. Through varied experiences, both within the classroom and outside, and quality teaching and learning, the children develop their curiosity and are then keen to explore and discover independently. We have carefully chosen content that links with the 17 core concepts running through our curriculum and ensures that our curriculum content is designed to reflect our diverse community at Coppetts Wood.
Within the History curriculum, we aim to encourage historical enquiry by broadening the pupils’ critical thinking skills through source analysis, sifting arguments and developing both internal and external perspectives and judgment. As our students develop and become increasingly curious about their own identities and their place within the global community, we hope to provide them with the resources and knowledge to be able to navigate their way through life. We want to inspire our children to learn about the past not just in Britain but the wider world and have designed a curriculum that reflects a study of cultures all around the world. Within medium term planning, teachers ensure that key historical vocabulary is used and understood, chronological understanding is built upon in every lesson and that children are exposed to a wide variety of source material to develop an understanding of the past.
Throughout our Geography curriculum, we enable our pupils to gain an expanding knowledge of the interaction between the human and physical processes and landscapes, both terrestrial and marine. We aim to instil an awareness of the impact we as humans have on the environment. Through this, we strive to inspire our children to take responsibility to become positive contributors towards the conservation of our planet.
Our Humanities planning is personalised for our children and uses a range of resources to support high quality teaching and learning.
