At Willowcroft, Humanities learning is often closely linked to our school topics. Each term the children alternate between History or Geography based upon their chosen topic.
In Autumn 1, we have all enjoyed our Geography learning. Each year group have completed something different.
Year 1 -
Year 2 -
In year 3 and 4 we have been looking at maps. The children have looked at different types of maps and what they are used for. They have designed a map of the school and used co-ordinates to say where different parts of the school are. The children wrote a set of instructions using their maps on how to walk to and from different rooms in the school.
In Year 5 and 6
The children enjoy going back in time looking at topics such as: Egyptians, Vikings, Tudors, World Wars, Famous people and even special events and occasions, such as Remembrance.
We believe that a high-quality Humanities education should inspire in pupils a curiosity and fascination about the world and its people that will remain with them for the rest of their lives.
In Term 3 we are planning on transforming our school library into a museum. The museum will be travelling back in time showcasing work and lifestyles of many eras. Watch this space.......
