How past affects the present
We teach humanities because we want our pupils to develop an understanding of how events from the past affect the present. We also want them to have an understanding of the increasingly multifaceted character of society.
We achieve this by encouraging them to explore the similarities and differences in the geography and history of Britain, Europe and the world.
This knowledge and awareness helps children to develop useful analytical and comparative skills.
